Maybe he was hoping to impress the judge or “crack up” the courtroom crowd, but the fashion police at the Broward County Courthouse labeled it a fashion fail.
“Probably not the smartest attire for a defendant!” said Michael Weinstein, a lawyer who snapped a cellphone photo.
The man’s white jacket looked like a how-to guide for making crack cocaine, with a series of little pictures of a white substance with a spoon, a carton of baking soda and a little pot over a fire. The end product was a “rock,” slang for the drug.
The finishing touch was the slogan “stack paper say nothing” — make money and hold onto it, in the vernacular.
Witnesses, including the man’s attorney Joshua Rydell, would not reveal the name of the man, who did not get into trouble for his threads.
Rydell said his clients still surprise him by wearing drug-related attire to court.
“Giant marijuana leaves on their T-shirts…” Rydell said. “It’s so common that I routinely advise clients, ‘No drug-related clothes when you come to court.'”
Still, the jacket was open to interpretation — at least to some. “I took it as freedom of expression,” Rydell said. “I didn’t take it as a recipe to cook crack.”
Broward Circuit Judge Michael Usan’s reaction? A non-judgmental “no comment.”
OMG..NEVER MIND THAT HE WORE IT, WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND INVENTED IT??? LOL
