Texas man with warrant walks into police station already in handcuffs with weed in his pocket
How stupid can you be? This guy is in the running for first place. When a College Station teen walked into the police department asking for help with removing a handcuff he had accidentally put on, police went ahead and put the other cuff on him.
Michael Logan Brown, 19, had an active arrest warrant accusing him of criminal mischief in October. He also had less than two ounces of marijuana in his front pocket, police said.
Brown arrived at the police department around 9 a.m. on a Tuesday last month and told police that his roommate had been playing around with some handcuffs and closed one of the cuffs on his wrist. They lost the key, so he decided to go to the police for help with removing it.
It’s unknown whether or not Brown knew he had a warrant out for his arrest, but who in their right mind walks into the police station with a bag of weed in their pocket?
“For somebody to come in with handcuffs, a warrant and marijuana … in 27 years [that had] never happened before,” Lt. Chuck Fleeger said.
Brown’s criminal mischief warrant was issued after police accused him of diving headfirst at a car windshield on Oct. 11.
A couple had been driving in the 1800 block of George Bush Drive when they noticed that one of the men who had been walking along the sidewalk began jogging and then stepped out into their lane of traffic, according to the police report. The car stopped about 10 yards from Brown, but he ran at the windshield without making any attempt to brace himself, police said. According to the report, Brown’s head cracked the windshield, causing between $50 and $500 worth of damage.
He lay on the ground for a few minutes before his friend helped him up, and they walked away “as if nothing had happened,” the report stated.
Officers made contact with Brown at the Campus View Apartments soon after but did not arrest him because he had “medical issues” to take care of, police said.
After discovering he had a warrant, police took him into custody where they found the cannabis.
