A Philadelphia man ended up in handcuffs after he tried to make his cab ride a little more green –by offering to pay for his trip with a bag of weed.
Michael Medvec was busted after he suggested that the cabbie accept the pot instead of the
eight bucks registered on the meter – an offer that didn't sit well with the driver or the cops that were stationed just a few feet away. Officers actually approached the cab to hassle the driver for double parking while he waited for Medvec to go into his house for cash, but came out with pot – which he tried to hand to the cabbie.
A police spokesman said, "The cab driver didn't want any part of it. It's right there in [the cops'] presence. They can't ignore it ... You do something silly, you need to get spanked a little."
