Tim Lincecum caught with pot after traffic stop in Washington

tim-lincecumA long-haired, laid-back, goofy-looking guy who lives in San Francisco getting caught with weed might be the least surprising news story in the world.

Nevertheless, Cy Young award winner and apparent Lasix dosage-enthusiast Tim Lincecum is in a bit of trouble after getting pulled over for speeding in Washington on October 30th.

When Lincecum rolled down his window to speak to the police officer, out rolled a cloud of smoke. The officer asked him to produce the weed, and he complied, handing over a pipe and 3.3 grams of marijuana.

Since it was such a small amount, Lincecum will only face misdemeanor possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia use charges, rather than a felony count.

But while he’ll have to deal with these charges in Washington, his deity status in San Francisco has been secured. There’s no better way to endear yourself to the locals than to smoke some weed. Oh yeah, being a damn good pitcher helps too.
