Pink And In The Clink: One Florida Man's Story

Meet Richard Quick.

According to police, the 47-year-old Floridian was recently spotted walking into an Orlando roadway and “engaging with passing cars.” After initially ignoring demands that he show cops his hands and get on the ground, Quick was handcuffed and searched.

Officers reported finding a pair of knives and a crack pipe in Quick’s pants pockets. As a result, he was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and carrying a concealed weapon. Quick also faces a resisting police count.

Quick is being held in the Orange County jail in lieu of $3000 on the three misdemeanors.

While an arrest affidavit refers to Quick’s “face paint,” the document offers no insight into how or why the defendant was so pink. Quick’s rap sheet includes convictions for disorderly conduct, trespassing, battery, and theft.
