You Found What? Where? Florida Man Strikes Again

You Found What? Where? Florida Man Strikes Again

I want to tell you a story about Florida man Wesley Scott, and it’s…well, it’s something. Scott apparently had some wild New Year’s resolutions, and found himself in police custody in early January on an outstanding warrant for a drug charge. (So far, so normal, right?)

During a requisite strip search, Scott, 40, decided to offer deputies some additional information. He fished out three – three – syringes from his rectum and handed them to the deputies.

After handing over his rectum syringes, Scott informed the deputies that they weren’t his. He also claimed that he found them. He found them. So he put them in his rectum.

I’m guessing the authorities aren’t buying that story. Scott had been searched in the field upon his arrest and warned that if he brought anything into the jail, he would be charged accordingly. The deputy stated that Scott understood the consequences.

So now, in addition to the original drug charges, Scott now has the additional felony charge of introducing contraband into a federal facility.

I… I have so much I want to say.

Don’t be a Florida Man if you get arrested

This case, although ridiculous, does bring up a few good points on what NOT to do when arrested on a drug charge. Provide your identifying information to officers, but don’t give any further information. Don’t try to explain your way out of the situation or attempt to negotiate with officers. Simply respectfully maintain your silence until you can speak to a criminal defense attorney. Don’t sign any statements until you’ve consulted with a lawyer.

What have we learned today? Let’s summarize:

  • Do not offer up any information to arresting officers and deputies
  • Do not sign away your rights
  • Do not hand over any anal syringes

We hope that last one goes without saying, but better safe than sorry.

Although this particular story might be a stretch, as a criminal defense attorney, I understand that things aren’t always what they seem. If you’re fighting a criminal charge, I can work with you to help get charges reduced or even dropped. My goal is to protect your rights and get you a fair shake.

We wanted to sincerely thank you for all you did to help [our child] through this difficult phase of his life. The additional time that you spent and your effort to take a personal interest in his welfare and progress was certainly far beyond what one would expect. We are most grateful and pleased with your professional services but let's hope we don't have to rely on them in the future.
