Weekend Randomness: Montana Teen Tries to Buy Drugs off of a Police Officer

This story is an amusing little gem which came out of the Associated Press News Agency today dealing with the case of a teen from the Montanan capital of Helena in the central Northern United States.

The male teen thought he was sending the following message to his drug dealer to get some pot "Hey Dawg, do you have a $20 I could buy right now?" Unfortunately, the young man actually sent the message to the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton.

Dutton originally thought it was a joke but quickly learned it was a real request for drugs. He got a detective to organise a meeting with the young man on Wednesday. He called three times to ensure it was the same guy. The boy was with another young man and an adult. When he flashed the group his badge one of the boys even fainted. The police decided not to pursue charges saying anything the police could do wouldn't be as bad as what their parents would do.

The story got me thinking about the related topic of sending a text to the person the text is about. I'll let a local Irish comedian communicate to you what I mean through the medium of song. It does include some swearing.

So I wanted to ask you guys if you have ever had an embarrassing experience usually communicating with someone via text or otherwise? Leave a comment below and I'll get back to you.


  1. Always double check the number you send the message to x)
    Good lesson!

  2. Yep. Thanks for reading and commenting.
