AND THEN THERE’S …..
Tabatha Coulombe, 29, a Florida woman who thought no one would notice if she tried to pass off Gatorade as her urine for a mandatory drug test.
Coulombe was being tested as part of her probation and she didn’t think she’d pass, so she smuggled a bottle of warm gatorade in her lady parts.
Unbeknownst to her, the lab tests to make sure other liquids aren’t being used, and she was arrested for violating her probation.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Marcos Estigoy, 22, and James Casto, 18, who were arrested for smoking weed in the parking lot of the Juneau, AK police department.
Alaska State Troopers found the pair “smoking from glass pipes” in the parking lot of the local troopers post in the middle of the afternoon.
They said the men apparently didn’t realize they were in a police lot because none of the marked cars were present at the time.
Both were cited and released.
Talk about an easy arrest.
