Judge calls Ontario cop a complete idiot for stealing pot-laced chocolate bar

Harsh words for a Toronto police officer who ate a pot-laced chocolate bar that was seized in a raid.

Vittorio Dominelli says he is remorseful and ashamed of his actions on the evening of Jan. 27th.

The officer has pleaded guilty to attempting to obstruct justice and he resigned this week.

Justice Mary Misener says Dominelli is a ``complete idiot'' for tampering with evidence.

Crown attorney Philip Perlmutter, who read out an agreed statement of facts in court, says Dominelli took three hazelnut chocolate bars infused with cannabis oil from the raid.

Perlmutter says Dominelli and another officer later ate one chocolate bar and became intoxicated in about 20 minutes, and eventually called for help.
