Florida story of the day.....

Suspect in stand-off: I just `sell weed'

The suspected drug dealer who ran from his car, hid in a Miami Gardens house and sparked a tense police standoff this week told investigators he was just a lowly marijuana peddler.
''I don't want to incriminate myself, but that was some good fire weed in the car,'' Troy McClean told police, according to a police report.
Miami-Dade police found a stolen Glock 9mm handgun inside the glove compartment of McClean's car and several bags of marijuana.
McClean was charged Monday with armed occupied burglary with battery, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and grand theft.
Miami-Dade police say McClean was driving a gray 2008 Chrysler that fit the description of one reported in an armed carjacking about 3 p.m. Monday.
An officer tried pulling him over at Northwest 197th Avenue and Sixth Avenue -- but he sped off, according to an arrest report.
Bailing out of the car, McClean ran through several backyards before running into a home at 765 NW 185th Dr., pushing his way inside and hiding behind a washing machine.
Three people inside went running out.
Miami-Dade's Special Response Team eventually smoked him out by shooting gas canisters inside the house.
He told police that he only drove off because he had an open beer can inside the car.
McClean stressed that he ''was not a bad person'' and that all he does is ''sell weed,'' according to a police report.

just like "the man" trying to keep an honest working man down.
