Philadelphia man Theodore Milner (pictured) thought his day was going badly when he and a friend ran out of gas on the Interstate near Newark, NJ on Saturday night. Things did look up when the 21-year old was able to flag down a police car for a ride to the nearest service station.
But that's when things got really bad.
Because what Milner knows now, and apparently did not know then, was that if you solicit a ride from a cop, he may very well enter your name into his on-board computer and quickly discover if you have any outstanding warrants or court orders for your arrest. Milner allegedly had three such court orders.
He was charged with possession with the intent to deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
