Man allegedly pedals away with pot plants


9.14.05

EUGENE, Ore. --A bicyclist was arrested on drug possession charges this week after a police officer caught sight of him pedaling away with three uprooted marijuana plants under his arm.

Police spotted Dwayne Earl Anthony Etzel, 18, cycling in the early evening Monday with what they described as a "big smile" on his face.

"I see this guy riding up the street with what looked like a big old bush under his arm," said Eugene Narcotics Detective Scott Vinje. "It didn't click right away that it was marijuana. Then I smelled it."

Eztel is in the Lane County Jail on charges of burglary, drug possession, criminal mischief, escape and trespassing.

When police tried to stop him, Eztel allegedly threw the marijuana plants at the officer's car and pedaled off. After catching up with him, the officer used pepper spray to get the cyclist under control.

Around the time of the arrest, a local man called 911 to report that his medical marijuana plants had been stolen.



:D

What is really funny about this is the guy was pedaling with the plants and an off-duty policeman spotted him, then a detective saw him. Oh, and the plants were stolen from someone else's yard where the victim was growing them for medicinal purposes. Quite legal,here. Yep, that's my Eugene, Oregon. Home of the lost-in-the-eighties hippies and other strangers. Northwest of Normal. Gotta love it.

Ahahahaha he threw the pot at the cops. I'm surprised they didn't charge him for that.

I've actually been to Eugene. It was in 1972 right before 6th grade.

If he were selling the pot by bike the title of this thread could have been "Pot Peddling".
