Busted: Cops Find Pot in Man's New Jeep; He Gets Off Because it's a Chrysler
Useful Info Nation ^ | 9/27/2010 | Thomas Bryan

Maybe things are looking up for Chrysler as it seeks buyers of its brand. Pot smokers and people who drink and drive from all over are flocking to dealerships to trade in their Fords for what many are calling their "get out of jail free card."

But it wasn't just the My Fox Detroit story about Chrysler workers smoking weed and drinking alcohol during their lunch breaks that has them in the buying mood. No, it's Darryl Dawson's story.

On Friday, Darryl Dawson was on his way home after buying a new Jeep Grand Cherokee when he decided to celebrate by taking a few hits from his favorite brand of "cigarette". After several fresh tokes, Dawson decided to stop at the local 7-Eleven for a bag of Funyuns, Ho-Ho's, a 99 cent hot dog, and a Red Bull.

Dawson didn't notice the two police officers, who had just gotten free coffee, walking past his Jeep door as he opened it releasing the aroma. After a lengthy search that uncovered three ounces of marijuana in his back pocket, sixteen Corona bottle caps in the driver side door panel, fifteen rotten limes inside the dashboard, and leather seats actually lined with empty folded Budweiser 12-pack boxes, Dawson was looking at serious jail time.

When the officers asked him for the vehicle's registration, Dawson handed them his bill of sale from the local Detroit

“’As long as those government workers at Chrysler are allowed to drink and smoke pot while they’re at work, they’ll always have my business.’”
Um, these people are building vehicles that other people actually drive....

Back in the 1970s my Dad's partner at work bought a new Oldsmobile 98. The car had problems and when the dealer removed a door panel a moldy sandwich in a bag fell out.

My buddies Dad owned an auto repair shop many years ago when the original Volkswagen Beatle first started becoming popular.
A customer came in with a Beatle saying that the car had an irritating rattle whenever they drove it. After they pretty much took the car apart, they found a wire hanger with noise makers attached to it behind the back seat. On the hanger was a hand written note that said, ‘Take that American Bastard!”

My mom bought a brand new 1985 Dodge Caravan and the sliding door rattled continuously from day one. She took it in more than once to the dealer and they told her they couldn’t find anything. After I finally convinced her to let me remove the panel on the door, I found a string of paper clips hanging from the lever for the door release.

And one of my friends who worked at Chrysler was driving home his brand new Daytona and it overheated because a worker didn’t tighten the radiator hose. Go figure.

I’m so accustomed to reading surreal stuff—oh, well, I’ll just go back to my original position of never buying a car that was made on a Monday. :)
What makes you think that actually was satire?

Come to think of it, one of my old bosses drove his brand new Cadillac out of the dealership and it started smoking something fierce. Turns out they forgot to put oil in it. NOT satire.

Here's a true story almost in the same vein. A friend of mine worked for years in the early 90’s as an aid to Marion Berry. What he did, exactly, is unclear, but, generally, he completed errands and did little things for His Nibs. Berry apparently insisted that his staff use his personal car whenever possible, even if it meant the Berry, himself, had to borrow a car. This turned out to be a very clever thing, as whenever some drug or other contraband was found in the car, which happened a lot, no one could blame Berry for it beyond a reasonable doubt.

Do you happen to know if any of his staffers or aides were convicted of anything? Wow, that really frosts me.

“Volkswagen Beatle

I can’t believe I’m on a conservative site and about to exhort you, “Oh, c’mon, AB. We all know what he meant. Loosen up!” :) So, there.

So far as I am aware, none of Barry’s staffers were convicted of anything related to his car, nor were they likely to be anyway, because the same alibi Berry was preparing worked as well for anyone else using the car.

Looks like Government Motors’ paint department got a hold of that one.
