Know What You're Smoking

Central Indiana has produced a number of great news stories lately. Just the other day we learned about deer jumping off of bridges and today we have a young lady who really likes to live on the edge...

Woman lights wrong smoke in front of trooper

MUNCIE, Ind. -- Police say a Muncie woman was arrested after asking a state trooper whether she could smoke -- and then trying to light up a marijuana joint.

Thirty-two-year-old Honesty Knight was a passenger in a vehicle that Trooper Eric Perkins pulled over for a traffic violation early Friday. While the trooper was talking to the driver, Knight obtained the trooper's permission to smoke.

Police say Perkins then asked to see the cigarette, which contained marijuana, not tobacco.

Knight faces a preliminary charge of possession of paraphernalia. She was released from jail on bond, but couldn't be located for comment because no home telephone number was listed in her name.
I DO feel like it's necessary for me to point out a few things about this story:
  1. Yes, her real name (according to the newspaper) is "Honesty Knight."
  2. Of course she doesn't own a phone. She spends all her money on pot and bail.
  3. This story would have been even better if Eric Estrada had pulled the woman over.

And people say pot doesn't destroy brain cells...

With a name like "Honesty Knight," I'd guess that you could find her dancing with any number of Brass Pole Partners in Indy's finer entertainment establishments. Either that or auditioning for a role in the next James Bond movie.

Our great justice system at work...release a criminal who cannot provide a phone number where they can be reached. Oh yeah. I can rest in the knowledge that I my personal well-being is protected by such smart people.
