According to the Tampa Bay Times, 27-year-old Elijah Dukes was arrested for possession of marijuana.

The Times reports that Dukes' '11 Camero was pulled over around 1 AM in Tampa:

Police said after the pulled Dukes over, they noticed a small bag of marijuana on his lap. He then tried to dispose of the marijuana by sticking it in his mouth as if he was going to ingest it.

Then, after police removed the bag from his mouth and took Dukes into custody, they noticed a marijuana blunt "resting on his right ear," according to the report.


This is like a scene out of Trailer Park Boys.

Dukes gets pulled over by the cops. Cops come up the window. Dukes, in efforts to hide the drugs - which at this point has already been spotted by the police - tries to EAT THE ENTIRE bag, not just the weed inside of said bag. Because Ziplocks are so easy to swallow, the cops easily get the bag back out of his mouth. But wait, it looks like it doesn't matter whether or not they obtained the bag as Dukes had a fatty blunt rolled and sitting behind his ear.

Oh, and this is the sixth time he's been arrested in the past year.

You just can't make this stuff up.

Elijah Dukes - Hall of Fame Talent... Elijah Dukes - Hall of Fame Record (and not the good kind of records)!

Parker, I'm not saying it happened this time but a good number of times when you read a "stupid criminal" arrest, the reality was a police officer did an illegal search and then claimed the suspect was holding drugs in his lap.

At least Dukes wasn't scoring with underage girls again.
