A Tampa man was pulled over for speeding on Sunday and told the cop he had to rush home, because he was out cheating on his wife. They searched him and found drugs. So now he’s facing jail time… and and an angry wife.
It is said that honest will set you free and 52-year-old Jon Earl Pickard may be set free of his marriage after all this is said and done. Pickard was doing over 90 miles per hour in a 55 zone on Sunday when he was pulled over for speeding. And when the cop asked why he was speeding, he blurted out that he had to get home quickly because he was cheating on his wife. Apparently he thought the cop might give him a pass but instead they ordered him out of the vehicle, searched him and found some crack in his pocket. He owned up the $50 bag of crack, so they added a felony drug possession charge to the speeding ticket, took his picture for a mugshot and made his story public record. He’s due in court next month, who knows, maybe he’ll see his wife there too.
