The Blotter: We just rippin' a blunt, officer

A brazen, yet polite couple gets scooped up by the fuzz

An APD officer dispatched to a call of a couple drinking at Harwell Heights Park met with quite the forthcoming crew: The male suspect told the cop they "were drinking and smoking a blunt," according to the incident report.

While the officer jotted down notes on the oddly cordial interaction, he said, the man "reached into his pocket and pulled out a piece of crack [cocaine] and dropped it on the ground."

"I picked up the piece of crack," the officer said. His investigation thereafter uncovered a crack pipe and a "baggy of marijuana."

The female in question said, "they didn't get a chance to smoke the marijuana because they say me coming," the cop's documentation said.
