Bratton Catches Weed Smoker Red-Handed on Wall Street

(DNAINFO)  Trevor Kapp — This crime was sniffed out from the top.

NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said Friday that he recently caught a weed smoker in the act on Wall Street and tossed the joint into the sewer.

“I had just had a meeting down there, 8:30 in the morning, walking along, the street’s packed with people,” Bratton said at a breakfast at New York Law School. “All of a sudden, there it is, that smell. What the hell — 8:30 on Wall Street?”

Bratton said he and one of his officers tried to figure out where it was coming from and finally encountered the culprit at a red light.

“Directly in front of us is this young woman, happily puffing away with earphones in and her school bag,” he said. “So my security officer came up on one side, I came up on the other and tapped her on the shoulder and she looked over.
