Aspen, Colorado is one of the most famous skiing towns in the country. If you're one of those super clever people who uses "skiing" as a code for cocaine, apparently Aspen is good for that too.

Just ask 34-year-old Eliphalet Miller Ford the Fourth. Great name, right?

He was sitting on a park bench in Aspen with a friend, getting ready to do a line of coke, when two cops came up. They saw a rolled up $10 bill in his hand, the line of coke on the bench, and asked him what he was doing.

He said he was smoking a cigarette. When the cops shined a flashlight at his nose, they spotted a bunch of white powder in it. Naturally, they asked him if it was cocaine.

And this is the best part. He said, "Of course I have cocaine up my nose. It's Aspen!"

He was arrested and charged with narcotics possession and resisting arrest.
