Guy Geiger, 18, was on his way to bury his shattered marijuana bong, “Niagara,” when Erie County deputies stopped his tailgating 2006 Saturn at about 10 p.m. on South Washington Street.
Deputies smelled “a slight odor of marijuana” coming from his car and spotted marijuana crumbs around the gear shifter, a deputy’s report said.
Geiger pointed to a metal pipe wedged in the center console, but deputies weren’t satisfied. They popped open the trunk.
Said the deputy’s report: “I located a shoe box with a large broken glass water bong inside of it. The shoe box had marijuana leaves drawn on the side of it and ‘R.I.P. Niagara’ written across it.”
“Guy advised ‘Niagara’ was the name of the bong,” the report said.
Geiger was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and following too close. Deputies seized Niagara and the metal pipe then released Geiger from the scene.
