Lawyer Cited After Dropping Bag Of Marijuana In Court

CONNECTICUT:  An attorney appearing in court on behalf of a client was cited for possession of less than four ounces of marijuana after a bag of marijuana fell from his back pocket in the courtroom, state police said.

Vincent J. Fazzone, 46, was issued a citation Tuesday afternoon, police said.

Earlier in the day, Fazzone dropped a bag containing about two ounces of marijuana to the floor, police said.

Fazzone declined to comment Tuesday evening, but a paralegal from his office said the marijuana belonged to the son of one of his clients.
