Arrested man: 'I don't smoke cigarettes, I smoke weed'

BRADENTON, Fla. -- A man in Bradenton has been arrested with possession of crack cocaine after officers found the substance hidden in a packet of cigarettes.

Charles Williams was sitting on bench with a few other people at Whitaker Park on Thursday morning. A box of cigarettes dropped off the bench and when officers told Williams he dropped his cigarettes he said, "I don't smoke cigarettes, I smoke weed."

At this point, officers picked up the cigarette box and found a small, blue colored baggie containing what appeared to be four pieces of crack cocaine. A field test on the substance confirmed the officers suspicion.

Williams was placed under arrest for possession of crack cocaine and taken to the Sarasota County Jail.
