    So this is why he wanted us to buy Dell's...

    'Dell Dude' Arrested for Marijuana in NY

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Actor Benjamin Curtis, the Dell Computer Corp. pitchman "Steven" who says on television, "Dude, yer gettin' a Dell," was arrested for possessing marijuana in New York, officials said on Monday.

    Curtis, 22, was charged with criminal possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor that carries a prison sentence of up to three months if he is convicted, a spokesman for the Manhattan district attorney's office said.

    Curtis, who lives in New York and was arrested on Sunday night, was scheduled to appear in Manhattan Criminal Court later on Monday.

    A spokesman for the Round Rock, Texas-based Dell said he was not familiar with the details and declined to speculate on future plans for the advertising campaign.

    "We're following the situation closely and working with our ad agency to understand what's transpired here," spokesman Venancio Figueroa said. The ad agency is DDB of Chicago.

    Dell, the No. 2 personal computer company, makes most of its money selling to businesses and schools. It began the TV and print commercials featuring the wise-cracking "Steven" three years ago.

    A few minutes after I posted that story I read that the judge told him the charges will most likely be dropped. It was fun to dream the jail thoughts while it lasted.

    "We are following the situation and really trying to understand what happened here," Venancio Figueroa said.
    What happened was Dell didn't sell weed over the internet as a promotional exclusive - all I ever got were some free re-writable CD's.

    However, my computer did come with a MOUSE!

    In NYC most marijuana charges are dropped if it is a first offense. Some of my friends got arrested and had the charges dropped for that reason. Just some probation and that is it.
