A 26-year-old woman in Florida is making headlines not for her arrest on drug possession charges, but for her outlandish, yet, we gotta give it to her, highly original excuse.
A swerving suspicious car was stopped by the Fort Pierce Police late last March. According to reports, an officer approached the car and noticed marijuana odor coming from the interior. Kennecia Posey was one of two passengers in the vehicle.
The officer inspected the car and found marijuana and cocaine in separate bags inside Posey’s purse. She admitted the weed was hers, but denied having anything to do with the sealed bag of cocaine sitting on her lap.
“I don’t know anything about any cocaine,” she said.
But here comes the best part. When questioned about the origin of the cocaine, she gave an answer so absurdly ridiculous that she might have stolen it from a Monty Python episode.
“It’s a windy day. It must have flown through the window and into my purse.”
Posey was booked on one felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession. ABC’s local 10 News reports she was ultimately released on bond.
The piece of absurdist comedy is similar to a last week’s case of a guy also in Florida who claimed the bag of heroin that the cops found on him were his daily vitamins.
Even funnier, the heroin fell out of his pocket while he was being questioned by the Marion County Police about a grand theft investigation. He quickly stepped on it in a slapstick attempt to conceal it. When the officer asked what the hell that was, his brain picked the best answer possible: “daily vitamins.”
