NJ cop makes unexpected bust in store bathroom

PARSIPPANY, N.J. (AP) - A police officer who stopped at a northern New Jersey convenience store to use the bathroom instead ended up arresting a man there who allegedly was breaking up marijuana on a $100 bill.

Parsippany police tell ( that officer Michael Sprung stopped at the store just after 1 a.m. Tuesday.

When he opened the bathroom door, he saw a 19-year-old Lake Hiawatha man sitting backward and fully clothed on the toilet. The man then unsuccessfully tried to hide the marijuana behind the toilet when he saw the uniformed officer standing in the doorway.

The man is charged with drug possession.
