The Neighborhood Loses A Pot Dealer
Written by Bwog Staff
We’re a week behind on this one, but we hope that the hippies among our readers will appreciate the news nonetheless (and that everyone else will be amused). Last Tuesday, the Daily News reported that a “aging hippie with tenuous ties to Columbia University” was arrested on drug selling charges the day before.
49-year-old William Delp “is accused of selling undercover narcotics detectives LSD, Ecstasy and pot, sources said. He was charged with drug sale and possession….Delp is listed as a casual employee at Columbia University’s Visual Arts Division, where he was an artists’ model, but never an instructor, sources said.” Columbia is refusing to comment, citing the “ongoing” investigation.
Of course, no tale of a neighborhood dealer would be complete without the disbelieving neighbor.”I’m totally shocked,” his neighbor Jonathan Perez, 27, told the Daily News. Then again, it’s also true that “he was always a pretty cool guy. He’d always give the peace sign.” Mr. Perez, we’re not children of the 60s either, but…c’mon.
