Florida man causes hospital fire by smoking crack with ICU patient while hooked to oxygen. ~ Michael A. Haber, Esq. ~ Call **ARRESTED or **MIAMIDUI




Meet 54 y/o Lee Vern Cook.  Yup, that's him below.  "Ole Vern (yes, that's what I'm calling him) may be a foolish man, but there's no denying that he's a well intentioned friend.




On Christmas Eve, 2014, Vern went to the North Okaloose Medical Center ICU to visit a bed-ridden friend.  (Does it get better intentioned than that?  On X-Mas eve nonetheless?).  But, instead of bringing his buddy flowers, or chocolates, a stuffed animal or even a stripper Vern brought a smorgasbord of controlled substances, paraphernalia for consumption and, naturally, his gun (presumably lest someone should attempt to rob him of his own personal pharmacy).


So in walks Vern, he and his buddy united, chatting, and then out comes the loaded home-made crack pipe for a little "sesh".  Sadly neither of these MENSA members thought about the fact that the patient was on oxygen...



and when the patient went to light up the gas caught fire.... {insert Bugs Bunny / Coyote moment here}...


Fortunately for society the burn damage was limited to the bed linens, the patient's gown, the oxygen mask and the patient himself (he suffered burns and had to be removed from ICU and taken to the burn unit).  Vern, on the other hand, go to spend the balance of Christmas Eve and Christmas day in the Okaloosa County, FL jail, facing one (1) count of Arson, five (5) counts of possession of a controlled substance, one (1) count of possession of paraphernalia and one (1) count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.


Memo to Vern:  Crack kills....


Except for this crack...
