February 15, 2013
CUMMING, Ga. —A 48-year-old man walked into the courthouse to pay a fine, but left handcuffed with several misdemeanor drug charges against him.

Michael John Forcey, 48, of Cumming, was arrested and charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance, a felony offense, three counts of possession of drug-related item or narcotic equipment, one count of possession of marijuana and one count of prescriptions/dangerous drugs not in original container, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff's incident report.

At 9:45 a.m. Jan. 30, Forcey arrived at the courthouse to pay a citation. The deputy working at the security checkpoint asked Forcey to empty his pockets into the container used for X-raying personal property.

According to the report, Forcey emptied his pockets without hesitation.

In addition to a lighter, wallet and phone, Forcey pulled out a piece of aluminum foil rolled up to use as a pipe, the deputy said.

"Are you serious?" the deputy asked Forcey, who appeared clueless at the situation.

The report said the pipe also smelled like marijuana. Forcey also produced two cigarette packs — one containing marijuana and another one containing unidentified pills.

Forcey was arrested and transported to the Forsyth County Detention Center.

    Micheal John Forcey really thought it was smart to bring pot, to the courthouse...really, thank goodness, this pothead was caught, before he harmed others. Kudos to law enforcement on getting this guy!

    It's comical, but sad. I guess this proved wthout a shadow of a doubt that drugs will do harm to your brian. He can now serve as a "Poster Child". Just plain dumb!

    I don't smoke weed...

    ...but I will say that in my own experience in dealing with those who either smoke pot or drink (or both), it's always the alcohol that does the killing, not the pot. Either from liver disease or cancer or drunk driving.

    Just sayin'...

    So at least this guy was going to take care of a fine. It's pretty obvious he forgot he had those items in his pockets. It's also obvious that this gentleman needs help with an addiction. He may get the help he needs now. =)
