SARASOTA - Police officers arrested a man for possession of crack cocaine after the man reportedly made an unusual statement.

41-year-old Charles Williams of Bradenton was sitting at a table in a Sarasota park when he dropped a cigarette box. 

Officers nearby told Williams he dropped his smokes and he allegedly replied “I don't smoke cigarettes, I smoke weed." 

Officers retrieved the box and they say they found the crack inside.

Williams faces a felony possession charge.
