A judge at Southampton Crown Court in Southampton, England, was beside himself over a criminal case he called "odd and bizarre."

The case involved drug use, women's lingerie and spuds.


Police arrested 30-year-old James Johnson at Travelodge in Eastleigh. James wore a bra over his shirt, appeared intoxicated and was apparently filling a bathtub with potatoes in the hotel room.


To celebrate his return to his hometown of Eastleigh, Johnson decided to go full Animal House for a night of uninhibited partying with two of his besties.


...but with drugs.

James booked a room at a Travelodge in the town near Southampton and purchased £750 (approximately $975) worth of drugs on the dark web. The initial one-night-binge extended to five days as the trio loaded up on various substances.

Four days later, police officers discovered Johnson reentering his room blitzed out of his mind and wearing a women's bra over his shirt.

The peculiar sighting revealed plenty about Johnson's mental state, but his bag loaded with five pounds worth of taters took things to another level.

Police searched James' room and found a cornucopia of drugs, including ecstasy or MDMA, the hallucinogen 2CB and 5 MA-PB.

Also, a bathtub being filled with potatoes.

In England, chips are American fries and crisps are American chips.

According to Daily Echo, prosecutor James Kellum told court officials that hotel staff members were alerted to the smell of pot emanating from the boys' room.

A separate search of Johnson's home in Ely uncovered even more drugs. He was charged with possession with intent to supply, to which he pleaded guilty.

The court discovered that Johnson, who works as a volunteer, was on prescribed medication but stopped taking them once he turned to "class A" drugs.


After authorities seized and tested the drugs found in his hotel room, drug experts discovered that the actual value of the impure drugs was really about £300 ($390).

In an attempt to gather some clarity for the hotel hedonism involving the spud bath, Judge Peter Henry asked Johnson why he did it.

Johnson's response was plain and simple.

"It felt like the right thing to do at the time."


Can't deny the spuds.

People commented on the ridiculousness of the spudly affair.







Johnson will serve 18-months of community service and was ordered to enroll in a nine-month drug rehabilitation program.

No word on what happened to the potatoes, though.
