New England Superfan Buys Fake Weed, Shows Off Patriots Scalp Tattoo in … – Complex.com
The picture you see above is a mugshot for the recently jailed Victor Thompson, a Florida man who was busted for possession of synthetic marijuana last month by St. Petersburg, FL police.
Commonly known as “Spice”, Thompson reportedly purchased the synthetic weed “from a black male for $15”, unaware of the drug’s illegality in the state of Florida. Thompson is a native of New Hampshire who had just moved to the Panhandle State three weeks earlier. He claimed that synthetic marijuana is still legal in New Hampshire. (Note: It is, in fact, legal, though there have been health scares about the product as of late.)
Of course, we’re not so interested in Thompson’s arrest as we are the tattoos permanently stamped onto his head above. Boasting a Lombardi trophy, two New England Patriots logos, and even the fucking Riddell logo, Thompson’s dedication to the Pats clearly borders on crazy. His deer-in-the-headlights look doesn’t help either.
As The Smoking Gun notes, Thompson even got the small green sticker tattooed on the top of his dome, a dot which indicates that a player’s helmet is equipped with an audio receiving device. Wow! Seriously, Victor, what were you thinking?
However, this isn’t the first time Thompson has been in the news. Two years ago, the superfan was arrested and thrown in jail for three months on a shoplifting charge. Deadspin scored an interview with Thompson, which you can read here. In the interview, Thompson says that he gets the tattoos “for pride and support for my team.”
Fair enough. We would’ve just bought a jersey or something, but, hey, what do we know?
