A woman in Florida was arrested for cocaine possession and when questioned by police explained that, you know, the wind blew it into her purse. That’s how it got there. The wind!
The car she was in was flagged and pulled over in Fort Pierce, Florida because it was swerving along the road. Kennecia Posey was one of two passengers in the vehicle. Police, citing a marijuana smell, searched the car and their belongings. In Posey’s purse, officers discovered a small bag of weed and a small bag of cocaine. Posey fessed up to owning the cannabis but had a more original explanation for the white powder stash.
“I don’t know anything about any cocaine,” Posey told police officers, “it’s a windy day. It must have flown through the window and into my purse.”
Sure, things have been windy. An especially menacing hurricane season just finished battering the east coast, and even into the new year, America has been getting whipped by storms with winds as strong as 90 MPH. I nearly got hit by a stray Starbucks sandwich board last week. But it’s hard not to be skeptical of Posey’s explanation.
The cops didn’t buy it. She was taken to county jail on one felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor for the weed. She was released on bond. You do have to applaud Posey’s creativity on the spot. She should sign up for improv classes at the Second City. She’d be an SNL writer in no time.
