Turns out Richard Quest is much more interesting than I gave him credit for.
CNN personality Richard Quest was busted in Central Park early yesterday with some drugs in his pocket, a rope around his neck that was tied to his genitals, and a sex toy in his boot, law-enforcement sources said. Quest, 46, was arrested at around 3:40 a.m. after a cop spotted him and another man inside the park near 64th Street, a police source said.
The criminal complaint says the officer at the scene was able to ID the drug because of "his prior experience as a police officer in drug arrests, observation of packaging which is characteristic of this type of drug, and defendant's statements that . . . 'I've got some meth in my pocket.' "
Quest's lawyer, Alan Abramson, had a much simpler version of events."Mr. Quest didn't realize that the park had a curfew," Abramson said. He was simply "returning to his hotel with friends." Any of you readers often return to your hotel with a rope wrapped around your balls?, and even a high school kid knows not to tell the cops you have drugs in your pocket.
