Rob Corry: Read unusual police report for attorney's smoking-pot-at Coors Field case
Marijuana attorney Rob Corry seeks PR for events like free-joint giveaways in Denver and Boulder -- part of his campaign against Prop AA, a marijuana taxation measure. Lately, though, he's also appeared in the news for incidents he'd undoubtedly have preferred to keep on the down-low, including a June arrest for allegedly breaking an RV's window. And now, he's accused of public pot smoking and disobeying a lawful order at Coors Field in one of the lengthiest and most unusual police reports ever for what started as a petty offense. See it and get details below.

Smoking marijuana in public would typically result in a citation similar in length to a traffic ticket. But documents related to Corry's case are an astonishing fifteen pages long, complete with a probable cause statement, multiple witness accounts and several pages pertaining to AmberLee June, a 33-year-old Salt Lake City resident busted for allegedly sharing a joint with Corry. Also on hand were copies of both their drivers licenses, which we've omitted from the PDF below.
Was the size and scope of the report dictated by Corry's alleged belligerence when confronted by officers, resulting in a second, potentially more serious charge? Or could Corry's prominence in the marijuana scene, and as a thorn in the Denver Police Department's side, have been a factor? Well, Corry has declined comment at this time, and the report's narrative features the attorney supposedly saying, "I bet I am a big trophy for you" and the cop replying that he had "never seen or heard of him before to my recollection."
The incident took place on September 25 at Coors Field during the final home game of Colorado Rockies all-star Todd Helton. A stadium employee is said to have alerted two plainclothes DPD reps that several people were "smoking marijuana publicly in the area between the concourse and the gate." When they approached, the report quotes them as seeing a man later identified as Corry "take a long drag off of the suspected marijuana cigarette," then handing it to Lee, who did likewise.

According to the narrative, one cop asked Corry to hand over the joint, and he replied, "No, I don't have to, it's legal" -- a statement that would certainly seem surprising coming from Corry, who made certain that people who received free joints at the aforementioned rallies knew they'd be breaking the law if they fired up in public. Corry's then said to have tossed the joint to the ground and attempted to cover it with his foot.
More alleged Corry quotes from the report:
(When asked for identification): "I don't have any ID and don't have to give you shit."
(When asked to turn around and put his hands on his head): "Oh, fuck off, cop. It's a citation only -- public consumption."
(When told he was under arrest): "I am going back to my seat and watch the game."
(When an officer began to search him): "You're a stupid cop. You are going to make this easy for me. You can't search me. It's a citation only."
(When told he'd have to go to the police station to complete paperwork): "You can go wherever you want. I am getting my stupid citation for public smoking and going back to the game. You can fuck off and bring me my ticket."
