Lady To Cop: That's Sugar From Donut On My Face, Not Cocaine

Lady To Cop: That's Sugar From Donut On My Face, Not Cocaine

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Police in Tennessee say they have arrested a woman they caught eating a white powdered substance. While she claimed it was a powdered sugar donut, the arresting officer said it tested positive for cocaine.

Lt. Paul Gilbert with Alcoa Police said 21-year-old Whitney Alison Holte was arrested Thursday morning, just before 4 a.m." Read More

I have to give Holte credit for thinking quickly on her feet, her "I was eating a powdered sugar donut" is a classic.

If a cop pulled me over for speeding, and he noticed a roach in the ash tray, a bong on the floor and bags of Doritos all over the place, I would simply say, "I`m busted".

I wouldn`t tell the cop that I have terminal cancer, that the bong was a gift from my physician, and that I have a prescription for medical marijuana. I wouldn`t plead with him to kindly let me go so I wouldn`t be late for my chemo therapy.

The incident began when Holte hit a concrete barrier, and she was reported by another driver. I don`t think munching on a powdered sugar donut will make you lose your coordination.

If only we lived in a world where the Man wouldn`t interfere with our pursuit of happiness, whether that be a powdered sugar donut or a joint.
