It was business as usual Monday afternoon in the Orleans Parish magistrate court when an assistant city attorney reportedly made a mistake that could haunt him the rest of his career. 

Jason Cantrell, the 43-year-old son of a magistrate commissioner, allegedly dropped a joint out of his pocket right in front of New Orleans Police Department officers, The Times-Picayune reported Monday. 

Officers reportedly laughed as they escorted Cantrell out of the courtroom and wrote him a summons for simple possession of marijuana. 

Marijuana possession in New Orleans is a municipal offense, so police can issue summonses rather than arrest wrongdoers. From here:

I wonder how many peeps this pantload has prosecuted for pot possession.
