Love the headline, BTW.
“The attorney was talking to a New Orleans police officer in magistrate court, where he was working on a private case, when a ‘marijuana cigarette flew out of his pocket,’ New Orleans Police Officer Garry Flot told the station. …
“According to the Uptown Messenger, Cantrell’s wife, LaToya, who is running for New Orleans City Council, issued a statement saying her husband had resigned and expressing her dismay over his ‘lack of judgment.’
"’I am very angry, embarrassed, and disappointed to learn about my husband’s bad decision and lack of judgment today,’ the statement says. ‘I absolutely do not condone his actions. He has resigned his position with the City Attorney’s Office, and he will accept the legal consequences as the judicial process takes its course.’”
