Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was arrested last night after a resident notified police that a tall man had handed another man pills. When officers arrived at the scene, The Rock became increasingly upset when when police officers told him “Your celebrity status does not put you not above the law” and booked him.
The Rock was released the next day without charges. The LAPD released a public statement stating, “We’d like to apologize to Dwayne Johnson for the inconvenience. Any time the LAPD receives a call, it is our responsibility to make sure it is treated in the most serious manner. For the record the pills found in Dwayne Johnson’s Fanny Pack were in fact not schedule two narcotics.”
This type thing screams “End the drug war immediately!” The pills Dwayne had were legal supplements first of all, so the person who made the call probably just saw it was “The Rock ” and thought he could make a quick buck off reporting it. The interesting thing to me is how Mr’ Johnson immediately goes to blame himself for the LAPD’s over reaction over a few pills. How many times have you handed your buddy off some advil or asprin or something like that? A Sucret maybe, Tic Tacs perhaps? Would you justify a SWAT raid over handing your friend a couple Tic Tacs?
But to blame yourself for giving your friend his vitamins is ludicrous. You did nothing wrong Dwayne! The Rock is quoted as saying,
“The LAPD was just doing their job. I guess it wasn’t the brightest idea to hand my friend, a few of my vitamins in broad day light. They’re completely legal by the way guys.”
