Florida Man Jailed For Trying To Sell Weed To Uniformed Cop

 

Asking a uniformed cop if he’d like to buy weed is a bold move. One that got a 28-year-old man in Florida arrested.

Terandell Curlee Coleman, has been charged with a couple of offenses for his sales attempt in Panama City Wednesday (June 12) night. The first is felony possession with intent to sell, but also felony child neglect because he just so happened to be pushing his two-month-old baby in a stroller when he tried to sell the cop $25 worth of weed.

From the Smoking Gun:

Lt. John Deegins, the uniformed officer, reported that Coleman approached him “using slang words indicating he was attempting to sell narcotics.” When Deegins showed interest, Coleman “parked the stroller” next to a vehicle about 15 to 20 feet away.

As detailed in a probable cause affidavit, Coleman offered to sell Deegins $25 worth of “bud” and “displayed a small clear plastic package containing a green leafy substance appearing to be cannabis.” Coleman was then arrested for possession with intent to sell the 1.4 grams of marijuana, a misdemeanor.

Coleman, who is being held in the county jail, is scheduled this afternoon for an initial Circuit Court appearance. Court records show that he was arrested earlier this year for burglary and has been free on bond in that case. However, in light of Coleman’s bust last night, prosecutors today filed a motion to revoke his release in the pending burglary case.

Coleman was taken to the Bay County Jail. He was probably just trying to make some money but he should’ve used better judgement.

The Department of Children and Family Services took the baby and turned it over to its mother.

    He may have been attempting to sell weed, but
    that sure wasn’t what he was on.
    Meanwhile,
    Thursday 12 June 2014 the Jamaican government
    agrees to decriminalize Ganja,
    An increasing number of countries and American states
    are heading in the same direction.
    Away from loss of revenue and constant creation of a criminal class through prohibition, which could’ve never have gone on indefinitely,
    as it hurt the people and the nations.
    This breaking news that
    “Jamaica to decriminalize personal marijuana possession”,
    could not be possible without American approval,
    as Jamaica sits well within the “backyard”
    at 100 miles off the American coast.
    So, this is Good News for Jamaica,
    for Rastafari who use Ganja as a holy sacrament, and
    for medical users and the casual, recreational user.
    This will take a pressure off the people, the prisons and the police.
    Now that the U.S.A. is starting to ease up on herb in many states,
    the Jamaican Ganja Industry should start preparing for legally supplying America as soon as the social, economic and legal conditions arise.
    Jamaica has long had the reputation of having the best herb in the world,
    now maybe is the time to cash in on that good name and
    help push back the rise of genetically modified skunk
    by the promotion of good wholesome natural weed.
    Jamaica is the bell tower that tells us the world is a changing,
    It’s High Time Too.
