Talk about a real crack-head...

Several years ago, I found a delightful book. It was a collection of dumb-criminal stories. It took its title from one story of a guy pulled over for a traffic violation. The police searched him, and found drugs in his pocket. His defense? "These aren't my pants!"

That story came to mind when I read this report in the Boston Herald. Of all the places on your person to hide your drug stash from the police, this is the first time I've heard of that particular body part being used... and her denial is positively Shakespearean.

Perhaps King Claudius planted the drugs on her...

"this is my friend's car, he let me borrow it for a few days"
"What's his name"
"I don't know his real name ... "

Best new excuse was the prostitute that was picked up in a sweep and as she's being arrested tells the officer

"I'm no whore, I just give blowjobs for donations."

We've even had the "this is... (Below threshold)

We've even had the "this isn't my underwear!" excuse when cocaine (crack, of course!) was found in the boxers someone was wearing at the time of booking. That happened shortly before the time a shoplifter was arrested for stuffing crabs in his pants in a local supermarket (Sandy Berger's dress rehearsal, perhaps?).
