Elderly couple Two young whippersnappers pulled over by SWAT cops and told to remove Ohio Buckeye decal from bumper because someone else might be as stupid as the cops and think it was a depiction of a marijuana plant
Bonnie Jonas-Boggioni, 65, and her husband were driving home to Plano, Texas from Columbus after attending her mother-in-law’s funeral when a pair of black police SUV’s stopped the couple a few miles outside of Memphis.
“Knowing I wasn’t speeding, I couldn’t imagine why,” Jonas-Boggioni told the Columbus Dispatch. “They were very serious. They had the body armor and the guns.”
On the back of Jonas-Boggioni’s car was a Buckeye leaf decal, similar to the one players’ have on their helmets, and cops mistakenly thought it was marijuana leaf.
“What are you doing with a marijuana sticker on your bumper?” one of the cops asked Jonas-Boggioni.
After trying to explain that the sticker was not a marijuana leaf and that she and her husband were not trafficking drugs cross-country, the police advised Jonas-Boggioni to remove the sticker as to not cause any more confusion.
“I didn’t take it off,” Jonas-Boggioni told the paper. “This little old lady is no drug dealer.”
