Busted Rabbi

A rabbi in Westchester NY was busted while driving under the influence of marijuana and was found in possession of an ounce of pot. As part of his sentence he must submit to random drug testing and start a program on substance abuse for adults and children.

He allegedly had claimed that he had spilled water in the front seat and it had turned into pot. He also claimed he was listening to Jewish prayers on the radio but no one could recall the Dead davening in their San Francisco show of July 12th, 1982.

There is also a question whether he has taken steroids as he recently was able to read more of the Torah at services and had increased his yarmulke 3 sizes since January.

The following article fails to mention that Mr. Garfunkel was com-pleting his rabbinical studies.

NEW YORK (Reuters) -- Singer Art Garfunkel, who pleaded guilty to marijuana possession last year, has been arrested again on the same charge.

Garfunkel, 63, half of the legendary '60s duo Simon and Garfunkel, was pulled over on Sunday by a New York state trooper near Woodstock after running a stop sign, The Daily Freeman newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The trooper's report of the incident said a strong marijuana odor was coming from the car and a marijuana cigarette was found in the ashtray.

Garfunkel, who lives in New York City, was given a ticket and is due to appear in Woodstock Town Court on September 22.

In January 2004, Garfunkel was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana after state police from the same barracks stopped his car for speeding. He subsequently pleaded guilty and paid a $100 fine and a $100 state surcharge.

Garfunkel's hits with Paul Simon include "Bridge Over Troubled Water," "The Sound of Silence" and "Scarborough Fair."
