Three people cited when bong falls out of car

The News-Review

A road trip from California was spoiled for several young adults Thursday when their bong fell at the feet of a police officer during a traffic stop.

An Oregon State Police trooper pulled the northbound 2000 Toyota Sienna over near Milepost 115 and noticed the car smelled of alcohol, according to an OSP report.

While attempting to gather information from the three California residents, the bong (big drug pipe) fell out of the vehicle as passenger Benjamin Breiner, 18, of Berkeley opened the door.

The trooper then discovered a plastic container of psilocybin mushrooms and a small black bag holding several bags of marijuana. Michael Fox, 19, of Oakland, Calif., told the trooper he had a medical marijuana card out of California.

The card is not valid or recognized in Oregon, however.

The trooper also found several containers of alcohol in the vehicle and cited Braxton Shapiro, 18, of Orinda, Calif., Briener and Fox with minor in possession.

Shapiro, the driver, was also cited for having an open container in the vehicle, and he and Breiner were released.

Fox was taken to the Douglas County Jail on further charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.
