We have a belated holiday gift for you. It’s in the form of a story about a woman caught snorting cocaine at a police station. Or trying to, anyway. There is a time and place for cocaine. Say you’re standing in the upstairs bathroom of the Rainbow Bar and Grill and the ghost of Lemmy Kilmister swoops down from the heavens and cuts you out a rail. That would be an optimal time and place to give some of that Columbian go-go powder a little toot.
Now, let’s pretend you’re somewhere else. Say, sitting in a police station, somewhere in Connecticut, waiting to talk to the cops about a reckless driving complaint. We’re going to go out on a limb here and say that’s probably not the best environment to do a line of coke.
But that did not stop a Connecticut woman from making an admiral attempt at such a lunatic stunt. Here’s what happened when she tried snorting cocaine at a police station.
The story begins on Christmas Day. The Ledyard Police Department received word that a black Kia SUV was terrorizing the local streets. It seemed that someone was driving around town a little too erratically for a day designated to celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus.
Being a small town, it didn’t take long before police were able to match the description of the vehicle with 25-year-old Nicole Hunter. So, they decided to drive over there to find out what inspired her to drive like a bat out of hell.
When police showed up at her home, they spotted the Kia. The officers were about to knock at the front door to have a little chat with Hunter when they realized that she was still sitting in the driver’s seat—just hanging out.
This, of course, struck them as a bit odd, considering how cold it was outside. So they motioned for her to roll down her window in hopes of engaging in a more intimate conversation.
Perhaps this is where Hunter could have saved herself from the perilous grips of law enforcement on Christmas. But that’s not at all that happened, according to the Hartford Courant. The report indicates that Hunter was “uncooperative” and “screaming outside in a residential neighborhood.” She apparently even took her yuletide savagery to the next level by becoming “belligerent and [charging] at the officers.”
Officers arrested Hunter and dragged her down to Ledyard Police Department on a disorderly conduct charge. She was going to be having her Christmas dinner in the slammer, that’s for sure. But not for anything serious enough to bring about any real trouble in the realm of the criminal justice system.
But that was before one of the cops looked up and noticed that Hunter had pulled out a container of what appeared to be cocaine and was trying to snort it, right there in the middle of the police station.
The cops managed to stop her before she could get the drugs up her nose. Officers then ran a preliminary test, which determined that the powdery substance was indeed cocaine.
Final Hit: Woman Tries Snorting Cocaine at a Police Station
In addition to her previous charge, Hunter was booked for possession of a controlled substance and interfering with a police officer. She will answer to these indiscretions in the next couple of weeks, reports the Courant.
The cocaine charge alone could result in seven years imprisonment and fines reaching $250,000. There is a distinct possibility that the possession charge could be reduced. But she might need to snitch out a dealer in exchange for this kind of deal.
Whatever the outcome, it will not be good.
Snorting cocaine at a police station is likely one of the dumbest things we’ve ever heard. But it’s not the worst.
Last year, a couple of guys used the ATM at the Hartford Police Department to buy cocaine from an undercover cop. Let that sink in for a minute. The two men were arrested and forced to give up the $60 they retrieved from the cash machine. Police said the money was evidence.
In other news, a Hartford pastry shop reportedly sold $60 more donuts than the previous year.
