2011_07_jointarrest.jpgA woman attending a bachelorette party at a Lower East Side club decided to step outside to smoke a joint and it wound up making her rich. We should also tell you that the woman was quickly thrown to the ground and arrested by the NYPD for lighting up. Officers confiscated her blood sugar meter and she had to be rushed to Bellevue Hospital for emergency treatment. The woman sued the city and settled for $125,000, which she will use to pay off student loans. [NYT]
