DISCLAIMER: (To protect the identities of everyone involved, their names have been changed.) Tonight, some shit went down. The story goes like this. It involves 5 characters: J - Me J2 - My brother C - My brother's girlfriend R - Our mutual friend, whom we are tight with W - Dealer Alright. So, I just picked up Dead Rising 2 (kickass game, btw) and I am at home playing it. My brother calls me, "Hey J, come scoop me from M's house, let's smoke afterwards." (M is another good friend of ours, he wasn't involved in this situation though.) So I do, and he is with R. J2 and R hop in my car, and J2 says "Hey bro, can you go pick up C?" I tell him yes. Now, we're trying to find some bud. J2 calls W, who used to be our main connect a few months back. The conversation went like this: J2: "Whaddup, you gotta dime?" W: "Yeah man, but I'm in Detroit right now, should be back in about 20." J2: "Alright, hit me up." W: "For sure, man." So now, we're on our way to C's house. I didn't really mind going there, there's this Sunoco by her house that always has gas for cheap. So after we pick up C, we stop at said Sunoco and I throw some gas in my tank and grab a pack of White Owls. After that, we discuss who we're gonna buy from, since we don't feel like waiting. I pull out of the Sunoco, and the discussion begins. J: "So, what are we doin?" J2: "Let's get it from... oh hold on, W's calling me" J2 picks up the phone. J2: "Whaddup." W: "Yo, you still need that dime, man?" J2: "Yeah, where you wanna meet at?" W: "Meet me by Al's." J2: "Alright, I'm on the way." So, I drive to Al's (Liquor Store) to meet up with W. I'm at the light in front of the liquor store, I gotta turn left, then right to get in the store. As I turn left, I realize that W's car is right in front of us. I chuckle, and follow him into the parking lot. Now, I've done a few deals here before... it's a pretty lowkey place. W parks in the back, and I park right next to him. W gives the bud to R, and J2 and I were about to give W the money. (This bud was mine and J2's... remember this.) Now, W didn't get the money yet, W seen a cop coming around the corner, into the lot, so he walked into the store. The 5 was still in my hand, shit. The cops are now coming towards my car, they park right behind my car so I can't back out, and they shine the flood light on us. They hop out and the talking begins: (O1 denotes Officer 1, O2 denotes Officer 2) O1: You have ID? Me: Yes. *Hands O1 Driver's License* O1: Will you step out of the car, please? Me: Yes, sir. *Steps out of car.* *O1 frisks me, doesn't find shit on me* O1: I'm going to search the car, is that alright? Me: (Knowing that R has the bud on him) Go ahead. O1: *Searches car, doesn't find anything* O1: What are you doing here from Garden City, J? Me: I was picking up R, from his house. I stopped here so I could get something to drink. O1: Ok, what's up with the blunt wraps in the back? Me: I smoke cigars. O1: Oh, ok. Alright, can you please stand in front of my vehicle, with your hands on the bumper? Me: Yes, sir. *Follows officer's orders* After this, O1 begins to question R. O1 searches him and finds the bud. O1 asks R if the weed is his... and R tells the officer 'Yes, it's mine.' I nearly shat my pants there. My friend just took a possession charge for me and my brother. We'll continue this discussion momentarily, the story's not finished yet. So, after they find the weed on R, they have him sit in the police car. Now, remember when W went in the store? Well, the cops searched his car without consent or warrant. I mean, O1 was on the phone when he was in the car, so he may have been acquiring a warrant, but I don't know for sure, I'm not too good when it comes to cops. So the cops search W's car, then O1 went in the liquor store, and came back out with W. W got arrested, and put in the back of the cop car with R. Me, J2 and C are then ordered to have a seat in my vehicle. We do so, and just wait. After a while, R is allowed out of the police car, and O1 wrote him up a citation for possession. He was allowed to leave with me. Then, O1 says something: O1: Who's car is this? Me: It's mine, but it's registered under my grandmother's name. O1: Oh. *Does an 'impressed' type of nod* Well, would your grandparents have $1000 dollars to get it out of the impound? Me: Hmm, I'd probably have to talk to them about it. *O1 goes back to car* At this point, my heart drops. I figure, 'Well, I'm fucked.' My grandparents don't know I smoke. I didn't want them to find out this way, plus I wouldn't want them dropping $1000 to get my car from the impound. So, I'm waiting for a ticket, when O1 comes back to my window: O1: Ok. You stay away from here, because next time I catch you, your car is mine. *hands me back my driver's license* Me: Alright officer, have a good night. The four of us leave, pissed off at the recurring events. Well, we're still trying to smoke, so we call up my main connect, who's been out of regs lately. Me: Yo, please tell me you have regs right now, bro. AJ: Nah, I'm out, sorry man. Me: Ahh, it's straight. Well shit, let me get two 10 sacs of kush. AJ: Alright, for sure. So, I go by AJ's house, get the shit, and go back to my house where we have a little session in my garage. The whole time, we were talking about the incident, and I felt so horrible because I let R get a possession charge. I don't think he can afford that right now, so that just adds salt to the wound. I mean, I could have said to the officer. 'No officer, that's my weed.' But I didn't. I sat back, and let R take the fall - But R decided it was best to take the fall, on the way back from AJ's he said 'When the cop asked me who's weed it was, I had to say it was mine... I didn't want you guys to get in trouble.' I have to find someway to pay him back... he just did me the biggest favor. I'm just kicking myself, because now this charge is stuck on his record for life, and it's all my fault. Also, W is probably pissed at me and hates me as well. I just don't know what to do, GC. I feel so shitty since this happened. Am I a shitty person?
