Bowery Hotel's Bellhop Busted Dealing Marijuana
by Nora Bosworth A bellhop was arrested at the swank Bowery Hotel Wednesday evening, after the porter allegedly sold pot to a few undercover cops at the hotel. The porter, a 25-year-old Brooklynite and college graduate, has no previous criminal record, according to the[ New York Post]. A fellow bellhop, Nick Shelton, 25, told the Post: "I feel like it was an isolated incident. He's a good guy.'' On Thursday night the culprit was called in front of court and released on his own recognizance, according to the [Daily News](http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/bowery-hotel-bellhop-busted-selling-pot-article-1.1181695). The young man accused the cops of entrapment upon his arrest, while his coworkers claimed they hadn't known about his other line of work. The Bowery Hotel serves high-end clientele, and was no doubt a profitable market for such a business.
