The Warning "HANDLE WITH GLOVES" Seems Appropriate For This Keistered Pot Pipe
Take John David Hall, for instance.
The 33-year-old Floridian was busted for an outstanding warrant following a traffic stop last Wednesday night in Port St. Lucie. At the time of his arrest, a cop asked Hall if he had “any drugs, weapons, needles or anything illegal,” according to a Port St. Lucie Police Department report. He answered no.
Hall was then transported to the county jail, where an intake deputy asked if he had “any illegal contraband on his person, such as drugs, drug paraphernalia, weapons.” Again, Hall answered no.
However, once inside the jail, when a deputy began to search him, Hall admitted “he had a pipe on him.” He explained further that it “was a marijuana pipe and it was in his rear end." As seen above (click to enlarge), the pipe was seized by jailers and turned over to police who placed it into an evidence bag with a red “BIOHAZARD” warning and the entirely unnecessary reminer to “HANDLE WITH GLOVES.”
For “keistering” the pipe, Hall--pictured in the mug shot at left--was hit with a felony count of introducing contraband into a detention facility, as well as a misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia charge.
