“Police say Othman took a swing at one of the sergeants when they forced him out of the car and were putting the handcuffs on him.  After cops say they found a joint in a cigarette carton, he was charged with attempted assault of a police officer, obstructing justice, resisting arrest, marijuana possession and reckless endangerment, DNA Info reports.  But in an interview with the NY Post, Othman insinuated that he was set up.  ‘I am innocent of what they say that I did,’ Othman insists.  ‘The truth is going to come out.  I don’t know anything about a marijuana cigarette.  I can’t say if they planted it.’  If they did, it would hardly be a first.”

No telling how this one will come out, but should be interesting either way.
