"Simpsons" Bust

AUGUST 23--Chief Wiggum would not approve.

Two “Simpsons” fans are facing narcotics charges after a traffic stop Saturday afternoon in Florida yielded an assortment of drugs from inside the duo’s vehicle, according to an arrest report.

Police say that Milton Gardner, 36, was behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Equinox that was pulled over on an Orlando street by sheriff’s deputies who reported that the vehicle smelled of marijuana. Seated next to Gardner was Destiny Jackson, 22.

After the occupants exited the car at the direction of police, a search of the auto turned up three baggies of pot “where Milton and Destiny were seated,” a baggie with cocaine residue, and a plastic pipe.

Gardner and Jackson were each arrested for possession of cocaine, pot, and drug paraphernalia. Jackson was also charged with possessing fentanyl and eutylone, a designer stimulant.

As seen above, when the pair was busted they were wearing identical shirts featuring “Simpsons” family members Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. Gardner and Jackson were collared about a mile from Universal Studios Florida, which features “Simpsons”-themed rides and recreations of Springfield landmarks like Moe’s Tavern, Kwik-E-Mart, and Krusty Burger.

Gardner and Jackson are free on bond in advance of their next Circuit Court hearing.

Last November, a couple wearing matching "Rick and Morty" hoodies was busted on weapons charges following a 1:40 AM traffic stop in Maryland. (2 pages)
