A man in Australia has received his sentence for dropping 0.34 grams of cocaine on a table while gambling, according to a report from the Australian Broadcast Corporation. The drugs fell out of his wallet when he was grabbing money to place a bet.
The man, who tried to shrug off the incident and keep playing, had told police that it was “just a few party drugs for tonight.”
Authorities quickly went to the casino camera footage and escorted the gambler to a private room and arrested him. He eventually pleaded guilty and received a $300 fine.
The incident happened at Skycity Darwin casino earlier this month.
