Florida Man Arrested After Merry-Juana Christmas Stunt


Florida, the Sunshine State, is known for more than a few unique pieces of the American pop culture landscape:  Disney World, Spring Break, and the ever-present anti-superhero “Florida Man”.

Florida Man refers to the frequent protagonist of the state’s more absurd news happenings, many of which belong in the backstory of sideshow performers or jail bound eccentrics.  This latest Florida Man story is no different.

Richard Ellis Spurrier, 67, was taken into custody with 45 grams of marijuana on his person. Spurrier was standing on 16 2nd Street North, handing out ganja to anyone who might need fuel for a gingerbread binge. According to the Pinellas County arrest report, Spurrier freely admitted his act of charity was “because it was Christmas.”

Spurrier was arrested for possession with intent to sell, though it seems unlikely that his 1.6 ounces would have gotten very far even if he had charged. After he was taken into custody, police also found a sword — yes, a sword — inside a cane in his car. Spurrier did not specify whether that was because it was Christmas, or just because this is Florida.

There is a happy ending for Spurrier, however, as the red-eyed reindeer was released from jail on Sunday, allowing him to spend Christmastime outside of the clink.
