Ok, so it's safe to say this is not the last name you want when you're in court trying to get out of drug charges.

"How about Edward Cocaine. What? ... You know, I thought I'd seen it all. ... How many times have police told you to step out of the car, sir, in your life?"
"Just about every time I get pulled over."
Yes, that's Edward Cocaine and he was arrested for allegedly possessing drugs.
What kind of drugs you ask? Not cocaine. Xanax actually. (Via Flickr / Dean812)
Cocaine says his great-grandparents immigrated to the country from Greece and legally changed the family name to Cocaine. Seriously. It's on his drivers license and everything.
A bit of good news, though, for Mr. Cocaine. The Sun-Sentinel reports Judge John "Jay" Hurley released him without bail.
