Jonathan Harrington, 21, thought he had a great joke when he heard that the University regularly inspected dorm rooms for drugs. Harrington took powdered sugar in lines to look like cocaine on his desk with a rolled up dollar bill and seven aspiring pills. The university police proceeded to do a field test and declared it to be real cocaine — leading to Harrington being charged with felony drug possession.
The case highlights the notoriously unreliable field tests. But the result is that the English major is facing five year in prison as well as expulsion. It will reportedly take weeks for the drugs to be tested and confirmed to be sugar.
Students have long objected to the lack of privacy in these drug sweeps and many no doubt applauded Harrington’s humorous mockery of the inspections. Here the housing officials called in the University of Miami police who admit that they saw that the tablets were marked aspirin but, with Harrington there telling them it was a joke, the field test said that he had left a huge amount of cocaine on his desk. He was handcuffed and taken away to jail.
Harrington will face arraignment next week on one felony count of cocaine possession.

Ahh, sugar, ahh,

Mr. Schulte and Bam Bam are allowed unlimited ad hominem attacks, yet I’ve never witnessed their ad hominem garbage get erased by the blog. Hmmmm. wonder why?
Principle of free speech…. haha on paper… not practice.
chipkelly – if it makes you feel better I have had a lot of comments deleted, using running fights. Today I never check if something is there or not. I just move on.
So congrats for ranting (with an incoherence you are claiming to lament about) about an issue to which you were clearly ignorant.
So much hate, you should get a hobby.
Never said I went to law school, I said my law school. I’m actually a graduate student (not professional) in international relations, and I’m a TA for a professor of international law and policy at a law school.
hahaha nonetheless, I’m sure you are like Abraham Lincoln in the courtroom and Louis Brandeis with legal briefs.
We can only hope that certain people will rack up enough arrests and convictions to keep them from ever qualifying to take the Bar and practice law. By all means, please keep getting arrested and self-eliminate.
California is one of the few states that allow you to practice law with an unaccredited law degree…you can stand for the bar exam with a piece of paper from a diploma mill…one man’s diploma mill, is another man’s outstanding education. The pass rates for many of these “mill” graduates is really abysmal…my wife’s cousin has flunked the Cali bar exam twice and possibly three times…
