Zacahary Cole Smith (DIIV/ex-Beach Fossils) e la compagna Sky Ferreira sono stati arrestati venerdì scorso a New York per possesso di eroina ed ecstasy. Il Daily Freeman riporta: “the pair were stopped by police on Friday in New York, with Smith reportedly carrying a plastic bag containing 42 decks of heroin while Ferreira’s offence involved possession of ecstasy and resisted arrest”.
Officers stopped a 1990 Ford pickup truck with New Jersey registration after the driver made several vehicle and traffic infractions, police said. Police said a registration check showed the license plates on the truck were stolen and the driver, Smith, was wanted by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office on an outstanding vehicle and traffic warrant. While taking Smith into custody, officers found a plastic bag containing 42 decks of heroin, police said. Police said Ferreira, a passenger in the truck, was found in possession of Ecstasy and resisted arrest. Smith and Ferreira were arraigned in Saugerties Village Court and sent to the Ulster County Jail — Smith in lieu of $2,500 bail and Ferreira in lieu of $1,500 bail.
Smith and Ferreira were out in time for DIIV to play Basilica Sound Scape on Saturday, where Ferreira joined the band to cover Cat Power’s “Nude as the News” which you can watch a bit of below.
Cole Smith twitta dal profilo dei DIIV: “what you’re reading is a police blotter, not the outcome of a court case. these cops wanted to fuck us, and they did. sky did nothing wrong”.
