Oops! New Orleans prosecutor Jason Cantrell drops joint in court…in front of police officers’
DUDE! Talk about a buzz kill. This is why God created glove compartments.
Jason Cantrell worked as a drug court attorney. In 2009, he unsuccessfully ran a race to become a Juvenile Court judge.
His wife is currently vying for a seat on the City Council
A New Orleans lawyer would have saved himself a lot of trouble if only he checked his pockets before heading to court on Monday. Assistant city attorney Jason Cantrell was issued a summons after he dropped a joint while talking to a police officer in Orleans Parish Criminal District Court.
People who witnessed the comical scene said that two officers glanced at the joint, and then exchanged a bemused look before making arguably the world’s easiest drug bust.
The pair were spotted chuckling as their colleagues led Cantrell out of the courtroom at around 4.15pm to issue him a summons.
