Dell Dude Busted

The Smoking Gun reports that Benjamin Curtis, the Dell Dude, was arrested last night at the corner of Ludlow and Rivington Streets for possession of a small bag of marijuana.

As TSG wrote, "Dude, you're gettin' a cell...."

The site says Curtis is being held on a misdemeanor charge. According to New York penal law, there are two degrees of misdemeanor possession:

  • Fifth degree, which is either smoking a joint in public or holding more than 25 grams, is a class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine of $500, and 

  • Fourth degree, which is holding between two and eight ounces, is a class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine of $1,000.

Two ounces of marijuana is not a "small bag" -- or so I'm told. So it looks like our boy was locked up for 5th degree possession. TSG says Curtis was kept overnight at Central Booking, pending arraignment.
