Another Florida man is under arrest after being too welcoming and inviting toward the police. Bunnell, Florida resident Arthur Carracino just really wanted a pair of Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies to check out his home-grown cannabis plant and smoke a bowl with him. In a body-camera video captured in the wee hours of the morning, Carracino attempts to get the on-duty officer to join him for a puff. And almost reluctantly, that officer ended up arresting Carracino for growing cannabis, which is against the law in Florida.
“You Gotta Smoke a Bowl with Me Please”
There’s a very lonely, almost plaintive tone in the way Florida man Arthur Carracino invites a police officer to smoke a bowl with him. “You gotta smoke a bowl with me please,” emphasis on the “please.”
Sometimes, you just want to be social. Sometimes, you just want someone to pass the bowl to. Even if they’re a cop—if you’re a Florida man. “I know, you’re on duty,” Carracino said to the incredulous officer, as he nevertheless heads off into the darkness to get his pipe.
The rural town of Bunnell sits on the east coast of Florida, about midway between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach.
