Its not easy being green:
24 year old Al Gore III was arrested by police for drug possession after being stopped by an Orange County sheriff’s deputy at 2:15 am on the San Diego Freeway for speeding. It seems that Al Gore III was traveling 100 mph in his hybrid Toyota Prius. Can’t you just imagine the conversation? But, officer, don’t you know who I am? Arrest me? But … but my carbon foot print is less than you police cruiser. That’s what my dad tells me.
A subsequent search yielded a small amount of marijuana, along with prescription drugs including Valium, Xanax, Vicodin and Adderall, said sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino. There were no prescriptions found, he said.
Gore was arrested on suspicion of drug possession and booked into the Inmate Reception Center in Santa Ana, about 34 miles south of Los Angeles, on $20,000 bail, he said.
We can’t wait for the excuses on this one. Al Gore III should get a lessoned charge or fine because his carbon footprint was below the average car owner.
