Police arrested a Pennsylvania man for attempting to sell illegal prescription pills in traffic court.

According to the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office, the genius, identified as 35-year-old Christopher Durkin, had a scheduled court appearance for driving with a suspended license before District Judge James Hanley.

Once his hearing concluded, Durkin walked away from the bench and engaged another individual seated in the courtroom, who he apparently just met also had a scheduled hearing on a traffic charge.

After a sheriff’s deputy instructed Durkin to leave the courtroom, the other man, who remains unidentified approached the officer and alerted him Durkin tried selling him Suboxone pills.
