Art Garfunkel Charged With Having Pot
    #2262971 - 01/22/04 04:11 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Oh my!  I had no idea Art Garfunkel was a doper!  :wink:

HURLEY, N.Y. - Art Garfunkel, part of the folk music duo Simon and Garfunkel, was charged with having marijuana after police pulled over his limousine for speeding in upstate New York.

Garfunkel, 62, of Manhattan, was caught with a small amount of marijuana in his jacket pocket and was charged with possession of marijuana, a violation, reported the Daily Freeman of Kingston.

Police said Garfunkel was riding alone when a state trooper stopped the limo around 12:20 p.m. Saturday in Hurley, 55 miles southwest of Albany. The trooper smelled marijuana after approaching the vehicle.

State police Capt. Louis Barbaria Jr. said the trooper didn't realize who he arrested until later, although Garfunkel told him he is a celebrity. Barbaria didn't know why Garfunkel was in Ulster County.

Garfunkel was scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 28 on the charge, or he could respond by mail or have a lawyer appear for him.

He faces a $100 fine, unless he has had a conviction within the past three years and police did say whether he has.

Garfunkel completed a U.S. concert tour with Paul Simon last fall, their first in 20 years. Simon and Garfunkel, who have been inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, produced a string of hits in the 1960s, including "The Sounds of Silence," "Mrs. Robinson," "Old Friends" and "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)," before breaking up.
