    What a waste. Did he actually think he WASNT going to get caught. See what painkillers do to ya ?

    They don’t kill the pain. They kill your brain !!!
    Prescription drugs should be outlawed and marijuana made legal !!!!!

      Whotta crock of crack! Thumbs down on comments that this guy is less than a shining beacon of the community; guess some people thinks he deserves a gold star for being so clever. Not so clever, he got busted of course!

    This is surprising. I worked with him a few years back, and he exuded professionalism and kindness.
