A Rock Hill, SC man has been apprehended by the police department not for his phone calls about a racist ‘fire pit’, but for having drugs on him at a later time.

According to a police report, the man who called authorities called them to state that a metal lid for a fire pit was racist.  The man thought the fire pit lid, according to him, was a mud pile with the skeleton of a black person outlined around the pile.


The officers suspected the man had been drinking after smelling his breath.  Officers also asked if the man had recently been smoking marijuana.  The man said he had just smoked a blunt and granted officers consent to search him when asked.  The officers found around 1.5 grams of marijuana on the man and arrested him on drug possession charges.
