Prosecutor to Ron White: You're Goin' Down!

5/7/2009 3:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ron WhiteSometimes a cigar isn't just a cigar --because officials in North Dakota are planning on going after Ron White for illegally firing up a stogie during his stand-up act.

Sources tell TMZ the Bismarck City Attorney's office will pursue the complaint, filed by the police department, when a plain-clothed officer witnessed White breaking a city ordinance against smoking in a public place.

According to the cop, and anyone else who's ever seen or heard of Ron White, the comedian lit and smoked his cigar at least three different times during the show.

We're told since it was White's first infraction, he'll only have to pay a $100 fine.

Ron's camp refused to comment about the incident.

Oh for Christs sake...North Dakota is a police state now? Do they have walls with c wire around the city of Bismark? Maybe with this hundred bucks, they can get started on that. They sound pretty hard up for money! I smoke, but not indoors, and not around children..I won't go North, but I am willing to send that sorry place some money so they can get started building their fortress!

For $100 he got $1 M worth of material. He'll probably open with gigs about himself being a fugitive for at least 6 mths.

KOBE BRYANT' RIGHT NUT    

HOW STUPID IS THE POLICE IN THAT TOWN THAT THEY WOULD WASTE THEIR TIME. JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW STUPID COPS ARE!!!! YOU STUPID COPS HAVE NOTHING BETTER ELSE TO DO THAN BUST SOMEONE WHO IS CAUSING NO PHYSICAL HARM TO ANYONE AND STILL BLOW IT UP FURTHER BY THREATENING HIM WITH A 100 DOLLAR FINE. I BET ALL THE TIME AND PAPERWORK USED TO PROSECUTE WILL ADD UP TO A LOT MORE THAN $1OO.

HEY KEEP UP THE BAD WORK MORONS. KEEP BUSTING PEOPLE FOR PETTY REASONS.

Ok, #4, instead of disagreeing with a cop, you attack a whole state that you have never been to stating that the cop should go after cowf..ckers. You are insulting. How about lumping New York as a bunch of murderers when someone is killed in New York? No, but if it is a mid-Western State, insult them and talk about f++cking cows. You are such a pervert and have no intelligence. Guess you went to Los Angeles school system which has the worst education in the country. Those Californian's - all about of stupid f==ckers....

"According to the cop, and anyone else who's ever seen or heard of Ron White, the comedian lit and smoked his cigar at least three different times during the show."

How exactly would "anyone else who's ever seen or heard of Ron White" know that he lit a cigar "at least three times" during a show in North Dakota?

Does anyone READ these things before they are posted?
