NJ Man Busted Smoking Weed Outside Courthouse

( 4UMF NEWS ) NJ Man Busted Smoking Weed Outside Courthouse:

A 23-year-old New Jersey man was cuffed Thursday for smoking pot outside a Fort Lee courthouse — where he was a defendant in another marijuana arrest, officials said.

A Port Authority police officer was leaving the Main St. courthouse at 11:15 a.m. when Jose Guzman of Union, N.J., walked by him reeking of marijuana, according to Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo.

The cop stopped him and allegedly plucked a smelly, half-smoked spliff from Guzman’s jacket pocket.

The 23-year-old quickly admitted he had showed up to court to respond to a September marijuana arrest and had stepped outside for a quick toke before court resumed, Pentangelo said.

Guzman was arrested and charged with criminal possession of marijuana, officials said.
