Weird Crime Wednesday: Dumb Moon Rising

Ocala Florida

On Tuesday, April 15 of 2014, the people of North and South America were treated to a lunar eclipse known colloquially as a "blood moon." Some idiots thought it meant that the end of the world was upon us, but most folks just figured it was a great chance to see a cool celestial event.

A group of teens in Florida, however, decided that their enjoyment of the night spectacle would be greatly enhanced with some chemical assistance. And while it's a pretty safe bet  they weren't the only ones getting high while marveling at the intersection of science and beauty, they were probably the stupidest.

"Whoa man....Mars is like, freaking out..."


For starters, the three teens picked the ceiling of an elementary school as their observation/bong ripping spot. Florida may not be home to much elevated land, but there had to be a better location available than that.

Surprisingly, however, their decision to smoke up on top of a grade school wasn't the most ridiculous thing that happened. In fact, the three toking teens might have gotten away with their evening of drugs, astronomy, and open rebellion...if one of them hadn't pocket dialed 911.




When police arrived, they witnessed the teens passing a bong between each other and the glow of a lighter. The group was arrested and charged with trespassing on school grounds, use or possession of drug paraphernalia, and marijuana possession of not more than 20 grams.

The subjects' names aren't being released due to them being minors, but I'm sure we'll see them in the news again soon enough.


...or at least by the next blood moon on April 4, 2015.
