Rick Ross

Pulled Over By Cops

... ON A BOAT!!!

4/22/2012 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rick Ross on his boat talking to the FWCC
Cops in Florida were thiiiiiiis close to making a drug bust on Rick Ross' yacht ... if not for a quick-thinking cohort who ditched the evidence at the last minute ... this according to law enforcement.

A rep for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (yes, they can arrest you) tells us officers flagged down Rick's boat on Thursday after noticing the odor of weed.

We're told cops boarded the water vessel and conducted a search ... but found nothing.

Now get this ... cops tell us one of Rick's homies ADMITTED to smoking weed onboard the ship ... but claimed he threw the dope overboard when he noticed the officers. 

The plan WORKED -- a rep for the FWCC says because the officers didn't find any marijuana on board, no arrests were made ... and no further investigation will be conducted.

The lesson -- see a cop, ditch your weed in the ocean.

rick ross's friend admitted to smoking the weed on board strictly to try and give rick street cred, he is a chump and after taxes he has only 10million in cash and assets, he is such a square he might not go broke he is a complete square probly is a cautious spender because he is a do gooder with no street cred like he was responsible enough to have no criminal record and be a corrections officer

I'm calling BS on this one It's difficult to imagine there wasn't a seed, roach or something on board this is just another case of preferential celebrity justice.

... The guy admitted to cops he smoked weed?

That's unbelievably stupid. Unless they have evidences, deny, deny, deny.

If that moron keeps blabbering like that to the police, he'll eventually end up in jail, no doubt about it.

That is hardly a yacht. It is a nice boat, but a boat.

Cop: "Oh, oh sir I'm sorry. I didn't know you're a "celebrity". I apologize for any inconvenience I may have cause and that you had to throw away your weed."

So I guess we have no rights when all law enforcement has to do is say they smelt weed. Hey butt holes, smell this. Whatever happened to the days when they were called peace officers? They don't care about the peace, but you will obey the law. Unless of course you are an ilegle ailien or one of the beautiful people.
