Man waiting for Ozzy autograph busted for pot

PALM BEACH GARDENS — A man was arrested in South Florida for allegedly smoking marijuana in the bookstore while he waited for an Ozzy Osbourne autograph.

Palm Beach Gardens officers say they saw the man, who wasn’t identified, smoking in the Barnes & Noble around 8 p.m. Friday. He allegedly fled when officers approached, but was eventually caught.

Osbourne was in town to promote his autobiography, “I Am Ozzy.”

Investigators say the suspect was carrying what appeared to be homemade fireworks, in addition to the marijuana. A bomb squad was called to dispose of the fireworks.

Police say the man will be charged with drug possession and may face other charges.
