    OVERKILL - noun - 1) the amount by which destruction or the capacity for destruction exceeds what is necessary. 2) excessive treatment or action; too much of something.

    Eight people connected to that infamous Columbia, SC pot party where Michael Phelps was photographed taking a bong rip back in November have now been arrested by the Richland County Sheriff's Department -- seven for possession and one for dealing.

    Included in Sheriff Leon Lott's arrest extravaganza: The suspected owner of the bong -- who wasn't even at the party -- but was allegedly trying to sell the bong on eBay for $100,000, according to WIS.

    The bong is reportedly not responding well to Lott's questioning -- and is blaming it on a loss of short-term memory.

    Don't worry -- Phelps is still a free man.

  2. Total overkill. What a waste of tax dollars & timel.

    Haha trying selling the bong.
  3. Love them tax dollars put to work :rolleyes:
  4. ilike it now people will think twice about putting pics of him out

  5. Chyeah, you're telling me. I hope/wonder if the guy who originally sent the picture in was the one to be busted amongst the crowd of 8. I kinda hope so, for the sake that nobody appreciates a rat.
  6. thats a gag they were tryin to sell the bong for big $$$
  7. I can see the description now, "Featured RooR bong straight from Michael Phelps' last use, bong water mixed with Phelps' saliva still intact, bid now!! Even comes with very own personal picture of Michael Phelps holding bong for authenticity"

    colbert says all phelps was trying to do was dive into a 3 inch pool of water, i believe it

  9. hahaha, that's funny. Colbert is the man.
  10. no...im glad these fuckers were arrested....they put out a picture of micheal phelps hitting a bong and got him fucked with the world...now its there time to get fucked:devious:
  11. I called the department where Sheriff Lott, the man who arrested them, works. I told them I wanted to make a comment about Sheriff Lott and they redirected me to a recorded message. I didn't even get a chance to criticize them!
  12. Thats fucking retarded.

    Pictures of someone doing drugs is an arrestable offence?
  13. Incredibly lame. I don't know what message the county wants to get accross, but if it's that smoking weed is bad, I think they're failing. That message is being muddled by the message that the law enforcements are douche bags for taking such a petty offence so seriously. But I guess this view differs.
  14. The only top reason I could think of the officer doing this is to make a name for himself and his county/station. Just think about all the appreciation he will get amongst the dick officer crowd for pursuing something related from a picture. I think that's why he did it. Not just because it's the law.

  15. well, I guess that's to be expected :(
    it would have been nice to be able to get through on the Fox News phone lines when this story went up. Not sure what I would have said, but I would have definitely voiced my opinion on this crappy issue.
  16. "Governor Mark Sanford is also weighing in on the sheriff's actions.
    On the FOX News Channel Sunday night, Geraldo Rivera asked Sanford whether Phelps should be prosecuted.
    "I don't see what it gets at this point," said Sanford.
    His spokesman told us Monday night Sanford is letting that quote stand."
