Crime: Got caught with 175 pounds of marijuana in his car in Dallas, Texas
Getting caught with 175 pounds of marijuana in your car is stupid. But what made Newton's crime even stupider was that he had actually gotten arrested in November 2001—just one month before he got caught with 175 pounds of marijuana—for driving a van that was loaded with more than 200 pounds of pot. So in the span of just 40 days or so, he was busted for trying to transport almost 400 pounds of marijuana. It didn't occur to him that he shouldn't be anywhere near illegal drugs while out on bail on his first arrest? SMH.
