A 41-year-old Bradenton man was arrested and charged with possessing crack cocaine -- but not before he had an unusual conversation with police.
Officers say they spotted Charles Williams in the area of Whitaker Park on North Tamiami Trail in Sarasota, which has been a known spot for drug deals.
When they approached him, they say Williams dropped a box of cigarettes.
But there weren't cigarettes inside.
Police say they told Williams that he dropped his cigarettes – to which he apparently responded: "I don't smoke cigarettes. I smoke weed."
Officers didn't find marijuana inside, actually. They said they discovered four pieces of crack cocaine.
Williams was booked in the Sarasota County Jail.
