Great thing he didn't wreck,

Great thing he didn't wreck, and get hurt. That would have costs him thousands in medical bills......
Hey wait, he's probably indigent, which means he couldn't care less, how many wrecks causes. That means, under Obama-Care, I'm the one that has to pay.

Watch for the Benz

to appear in Raleigh as drug seized property available for anyone to bid on.

I bet

I bet it is some ragged out piece of crap hooptie with dark tinted windows, big wheels and a booming stereo system.

Could be

but after the trial and conviction, look for the vehicle in Raleigh at the State's Surplus Property facility on HIghway 54. I was there last week; there were at least 3 lime green chevies and fords with 20 inch rims.

Did you see the car yet? Did

Did you see the car yet? Did you, NO cause he got the car back. Being falsely accused by the government can work out in your favor if u are a stand up citizen. REGARDLESS of your past.
