Florida Man Arrested For Doing Drugs In Hospital Maternity Ward
Via TC Palm reports:
A rock concert is a place where it might be common to smell someone smoking marijuana.
A hospital’s delivery and infant unit is not.
A Feb. 4 report of pot smoking in that area of Martin Medical Center in Stuart brought police to the hospital.
A security official told police the charge nurse in the delivery unit caught a whiff of spliff being smoked in a particular room, according to a recently released arrest affidavit.
David Bastin, 28, of Jupiter, wound up getting busted on misdemeanor marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession charges.
An officer spoke with Bastin and “explained to him that we are here because the charge nurse called and said she could smell a strong odor of cannabis coming from . . . (the room) where your girlfriend was admitted.”
Police asked Bastin to hand over the doobage, and he gave investigators a “black oblong device” he referred to as a “vaporizer.” In the device, police found suspected marijuana.
Bastin was arrested and taken to the Martin County jail.
Smoking in the maternity ward?! Stay classy Florida!
