A Florida man who was arrested for drug possession earlier this week has left everyone (a judge included) shocked, mostly because of his last name: Cocaine.
Edward Cocaine of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. was arrested in Pembroke Pines of Tuesday for possession of Xanax. When a judge heard the 34-year-old's name, he was baffled. "What?!" County Judge John "Jay" Hurley exclaimed during Cocaine's court appearance. You have to see it to believe it:
It's on his driver's license, so it's the real deal. He loses for not saying "My name is my name" to the judge, though. As for Judge Hurley, he was still dumbfounded: "You know, I'd thought I'd seen it all," he said according to the Orlando Sentinel. "How many times have the police told you to step out of the car during your life?"
"Just about every time I get pulled over," Cocaine said, laughing at the situation.
So how'd he end up with that hilariously unfortunate last name? His grandparents, who changed it when they immigrated from Greece.
Ah, the roaring '20s.
