Jamani msione vinaelea vimeumbwa! Huyu respected journalist wa CNN Richard Quest anayefanya vipindi vya Business na interview za maana kumbe nimtumiaji mzuri wa madawa ya kulevya na sasa yuko matatani:

Mr. Quest was arrested early Friday morning after being escorted out of Central Park for violating the park curfew, a law enforcement official said Friday. The park is closed from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m.

The police noticed Mr. Quest at 64th Street and West Drive at about 3:40 a.m., the official said. As he was being escorted out, he volunteered, "I have meth in my pocket," according to an official briefed on the case. The police searched him and recovered a small amount of methamphetamine in a Ziploc bag.

.... ha ha ha ha, nilishawahi kukumbana naye one day nilipobahatika kuwa huko kibahati bahati yeye akiwa na zake nami zangu, nafikiri atakuwa amenza zamani kutumia hayo madudu. huwa hamuoni jinsi anavyo brush pua yake na kuipecheka kila mara..... (dalili kubwa ya kumjua mtu ananusa unga)... hata hivyo jamaa ni makini sana katika anga zake za business, tangu akiwa bbc, alipo hama kwenda ccn late 90s or early 2000 chati yake ilipanda zaidi, maana freestyle type of telecasting yake iliwafaa zaidi cnn. the guy seems so rough though, regardless of his tv showmanship and all that enforced dignitary.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York judge ordered CNN reporter Richard Quest to undergo six months of counseling on Friday after Quest was arrested in Central Park for possession of a controlled substance, his lawyer said.

The British reporter is known for his boisterous and quirky style, especially on CNN International.

He was arrested at 3:40 a.m. on Friday in New York's Central Park for being in the park after a 1 a.m. curfew.

Police discovered a plastic bag containing what was believed to be methamphetamine in his pocket, police spokesman John Grimphel said.

Quest, 46, later appeared before State Court Judge Anthony Ferrara, who told him the case would be dismissed if he attends counseling, Quest's lawyer, Alan Abramson said.

"Mr. Quest did not realize that the park had a curfew and was returning to his hotel with friends. The matter is scheduled to be dismissed," Abramson said.


Quest is a well-known business news reporter on CNN International and hosts "CNN Business Traveler," as well as his own feature program, "Quest."

CNN is part of the Time Warner Inc media empire.

Anywayz huyu jamaa ni very interesting kumuangalia ktk show yake courtesy of Qatar Airways. I once thought in that direction lakini my conviction ilikuwa ni kwamba ametoka au yuko kwenye rehab. Anywayz kuna watu maarufu na inflential wengi tu Marekani wanatumia au wamewahi kutumia drugs...... Does that say is not a big deal???

It depends. If the guy do not have a valid prescription or license to possess the drug in question, ...it is a big deal to me!

Methamphetamine is classified as a Class A drug in UK. And according to wikipedia, Class A drugs attract the highest penalty.
