FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (UPI) — A Florida judge was a little surprised when a bailiff announced the name of a man who was appearing in his courtroom on drug possession charges.
“What?” Judge John “Jay” Hurley responded. “You know, I’d thought I’d seen it all.”
“My last name is Cocaine,” he said. “My great-grandparents came over here from Greece and they changed it. That was like in the 1920s.”
“How many times have the police told you to step out of the car during your life?” Hurley asked.
“Just about every time I get pulled over,” Cocaine replied.
The 34-year-old, who was accused of possessing Xanax, was released on his own recognizance.
