Deputy Ed Johnson was in uniform. He was also sitting in a marked patrol car. So he was surprised when a man approached him and allegedly offered to sell him some cocaine.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Michael Garibay, 34, of Orlando, walked up to Johnson’s car at a gas station Friday and asked the Orange County deputy if he was “straight,” arrest records say.

When Johnson said that he was, Garibay asked, “Do you know what that means? ... It means do you want to buy some cocaine.”

Johnson said “yes,” and Garibay pulled out a plastic bag containing several pieces of flat white rock substances and asked for cash, records show.

The deputy took the bag and arrested Garibay after the contents tested positive for cocaine, according to the records.

Garibay was being held in lieu of $7,500 bail on charges of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
