BAG FULL OF WEED FALLS ON SIDEWALK
A garbage bag allegedly full of pot that was flung off a Brooklyn rooftop in an apparent sale gone bad scattered onto the sidewalk, sending pedestrians scrambling to pick up marijuana earlier this month, police say.
The fracas started when a 29-year-old man allegedly brought the garbage bag to a rooftop on Eighth Avenue late the night of June 1 with the intent to sell it to some individuals. Those individuals had a gun, punched the 29-year-old and tried to steal the bag, which the 29-year-old then flung off the roof, authorities say.
Pedestrians picked up what they could off the sidewalk. It's not clear how much marijuana was allegedly in the bag.
