St. Petersburg Police Apparent New England Patriots fanatic Victor Thompson, 46, was arrested for possession of ‘spice,’ a synthetic marijuana, in St. Petersburg, Florida.

A die-hard New England Patriots fan got busted on a drug charge, but that’s not what got people talking.

Victor Thompson’s mug shots show he has an image of the helmet of quarterback Tom Brady tattooed across his head.

The football fanatic, 46, was allegedly caught with an herbal mixture of synthetic marijuana, known as “spice,” last month while trespassing on a community center’s property in St. Petersburg, Fla., according to an arrest report obtained by The Smoking Gun.

The terrific tattoo across Thompson’s head includes Brady’s number, 12; the American flag; an NFL logo; a likeness of the Vince Lombardi Super Bowl trophy; and “Riddell,” the name of the company that makes pro football helmets.

The attention to detail is impressive. It even includes a small green dot to indicate that the ink-helmet would be equipped with a headset for the quarterback to hear plays from coaches on the sidelines.

Thompson allegedly told the cops that he did not know spice was illegal in the Sunshine State because it is “still legal in New Hampshire,” his home state.

Spice is often advertised as a “safe,” legal alternative to cannabis — but it can kill people and has chemical additives that produce mind-altering effects.

It is sold under a variety of names, including K2, Yucatan Fire, Skunk, Moon Rocks and fake weed.

Thompson said he had just moved to Florida a few weeks before his arrest Sept. 10, the crime site reported.

He was charged with felony drug possession and trespassing and is being held at the Pinellas County jail in lieu of $1500 bond.
