Florida Man on Trial for Possession of Crack Pipe Shows Up to Court With a Crack Pipe
|Ramos's dueling mug shots.|
Ramos, 32, was originally arrested New Year's Eve when a police officer found a crack pipe in plain view shoved into his backpack, according to the Bradenton Herald. Ramos was arrested, and a hearing date was set for yesterday.
So at 8:45 a.m., Ramos showed up promptly for his court appearance at the Manatee County Judicial Center. While he was passing through security, guess what officers found? Yes! A crack pipe in his backpack.
Ramos was allowed to attend the hearing for his original drug paraphernalia charge but was then immediately arrested and taken to jail for the latest crack pipe discovery.
