Assault and Peppered

Daniel Augustus Jones Jr., 22, of Gainesville, Fla., was spotted by police standing in the middle of an intersection. He blurted out to the astonished officers, “I don’t have any drugs on me!” and emptied his backpack right there in the street. Officers say that among the contents was a bag of about a quarter-pound of marijuana, which of course led to his arrest. Jones resisted being put into the patrol car and officers had to use pepper spray on him. Then, while the patrol car was moving, he jumped out an open window in the car, still handcuffed. Jones was charged with intent to sell marijuana, and resisting arrest. (JW/Gainesville Sun) ...To air is human.
