Man Suspected of Brandishing Firearm, Turns Out to be in Possession of Marijuana Smoking Pipe
SPRING HILL – Sheriff’s Deputies responding to reports of an armed suspect at a local convenience store on Friday, were relieved to discover that the “smoking gun” was nothing more than the suspect’s marijuana pipe.
According to officials, Deputies made contact with 29-year-old Darryl Herbert Cockefur at the Speedway Convenience Store located at 100 Mariner Blvd, where they observed Cockefur standing near the gas pumps. Witnesses believed that Cockefur was brandishing a firearm but it was later determined to be a makeshift, gold and silver marijuana smoking pipe. As deputies approached Cockefur he spontaneously stated, “It’s a marijuana pipe!” Deputies collected the pipe as evidence and placed Cockefur into custody without incident.
Once in custody, Cockefur became irate and while en route to the jail he stated, “I’m going to sue you faggots.” And proceeded to call them “f**kers.”
Cockefur is currently free on a $1,000 bond.
