I’ve always said that crimes should be committed one at a time in order to lessen the chance of getting busted. Obviously some people don’t adhere to this policy, as exemplified by the guy who was tasered, peppered sprayed and pulled out of his car whilst driving about skid row smoking crack and drinking out of a paper bag. If you’ve spent any time in or around skid row you know that it is pretty easy to get away with either driving while intoxicated, smoking crack or drinking in public, but by mixing all three together you have a much higher chance of becoming incarcerated. The officer’s quote is what really makes this story though:
“He plainly wanted to go to jail high,” he said.
Deputies broke out at least one car window and used pepper spray on the suspect, but he still kept smoking the pipe, the lieutenant said.
