HAH! HAH! How STUPID is this guy?
« on: March 08, 2006, 01:38:19 PM »
NEW YORK (Reuters) -- Singer Boy George pleaded guilty Wednesday to falsely reporting a burglary and was sentenced to five days of community service and fined $1,000, but drug possession charges against him were dropped.

The singer also was ordered to attend a drug rehabilitation program during a brief hearing in Manhattan Criminal Court.

The charges against Boy George, who made his name as the cross-dressing front man for the 1980s chart-topping British pop band Culture Club, stemmed from an incident on October 7, when police responded to his call reporting a burglary and found 13 bags of cocaine in his apartment.

Call the police to report a burgulary THAT NEVER HAPPENED, and have 13 bags of cocaine laying around?

DUH

That's not as dumb as the non-consequences... you report a burglary falsely (big deal) and have 13 bags of coke (holy cow!) and you get busted for..... the burglary.  Wow.  What a way to not punish the serious behavior.  I know, sent to drug rehab.  God bless him, I hope it works out...

I see this from a different angle. Perhaps he intentionally made the false call as a way to get rid of his cocaine. Knowing that the police may do little but confiscate the drugs, because of evidence collection laws and such, he could have used the police to avoid drug charges!

That's assuming he's smarter than he really is... I mean, we are talking about Boy George.

What? He could have flushed it down the toilet.

So he could mimick his career in his drug disposal?  At least the police can get traces of the coke from the water and the edges of the bowl to prove that it was there - can't say as much about Boy George.

The police would have had no reason to do that. They were investigating a reported robbery - they did not have a search warrant and were not searching for drugs.

I wasn't trying to argue a legal point, I was using this as a way of poking fun at Boy George.

{EDIT}

I was trying to say: His coke could go where his career went - down the toilet.  But at least you could find traces of the coke in the toilet to bring back, unlike his career.

Not sure who he is :P All I know is that people can be very inventive when it comes to drugs!

No problemo... you were 100% right on your legal point, not like BG would know it (unless he's had problems in the past with Coke).
