"He could have very well arrested this teen," said Arlington Lt. Cook about the unnamed 17-year-old.


Arlington police officer officer Eric Ball was working off-duty when he received a tip about a teenager smoking weed, and proceeded to follow the scent. 

“Marijuana gives [off] a distinct odor. He knew what the teen was up to,” said Arlington police lieutenant Chris Cook of officer Ball.

After realizing he'd made a mistake, 17-year-old was surprised to hear Ball's punishment of choice. 

“He said, 'You give me 200 push-ups, I won't put you in jail,” said Lt. Cook. “He could have very well arrested this teen, but instead he tried to do something better,” said Lt. Cook about the unnamed teen.

“I would have made him do more push-ups,” the boy's mother said regarding the officer's actions.

While officer Ball was inspired by the discipline on his high school football team, exercising on marijuana may actually be better for you. One California gym even allows its members to smoke weed while they work out; a world's first. 

Raiza Paredez posted video documentation of the alternative punishment, which has since received over 200,000 views.  

“Big UP's to the Arlington Police Officer that made the young black guy that decided to smoke weed on the movie theater parking lot to do push-ups then take him to jail or shoot him just Cuz. We need more cops like this. #Policeeverywhereneedtotakenotes #ArlingtonPoliceDept,” Paredez wrote.

Joe And Mika At Mar-A-Lago Party; Joe Gets Defensive On Twitter

Don’t get me started about how much Joe Scarborough is connected to Donald Trump.

Readers of C&L are all too familiar with the “you’ve been supporters” comment during the primaries, the hot mic that showed absolute collusion on questions and campaign strategy between the Morning Joe hosts and Trump, and the off-hand “I know you talk to him regularly” slip by Reince Priebus, Trump chief of staff.

Morning Joe IS Trump TV.

And then Mika and Joe show up at Mar-a-Lago on New Year’s Eve for a …business meeting?

Who is playing whom, Joe Scarborough?
