Florida man wears shirt that says "Seriously, I have drugs", arrested on drug charges

A Florida man was arrested on drug possession charges but it's the irony of the t-shirt he was wearing when he was arrested that's making news.

John Balmer was arrested at a Kmart in Hudson, Florida, on Monday. During his arrest, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office noticed his shirt. It reads "Who needs drugs" in all caps. Underneath that it says "No, Seriously, I have drugs". 

He apparently meant it, law enforcement says.

According to our affiliate station FOX 13 in Tampa Bay, Balmer tried handing a bag of 'green leafy substance' to a person behind him after seeing the deputy walk in. When that person refused to take, Balmer walked to the register, put the baggy on the ground, and paid for his items.

The deputy checked the bag and found small amounts of marijuana and methamphetamine; the witness confirmed it was the bag Balmer tried to hand off, according to the report.

Another deputy walked up and that's when store workers told deputies about the bag.

The Times said deputies discovered the bag contained marijuana and methamphetamine.

He was arrested and booked charges of possession of meth.
