Ex-convict Terry Leon Simmons, 53, was allegedly arrested for selling crack cocaine while wearing a shirt that spelled out ‘COKE’
An ex-convict has found himself back behind bars after he was arrested for allegedly selling crack cocaine while wearing a T-shirt with the word ‘COKE’ in the front.
Terry Leon Simmons, 53, was arrested on Friday and charged with felony cocaine sale and delivery of cocaine.
He also faces a second drug felony after arresting officers found a marijuana joint and bag of MDMA in plain view inside his home in Fort Pierce, Florida.
Authorities said that Simmons sold crack cocaine to an undercover agent at a convenience store just blocks from his apartment.
The agent pulled up to the store to meet Simmons, who was wearing a ‘two-toned blue shirt with red lettering on the front that said “COKE,”‘ according to the arrest report, obtained by the Smoking Gun.
It remains unclear if ‘COKE’ was written in the same font as the famous logo for the beloved soft drink.
The agent asked Simmons for $40 of “Hard”, a term that is ‘used by drug users and dealers in reference to crack cocaine,’ the report states.

Simmons then allegedly went to the passenger side of the agent’s vehicle and pulled out an orange pill bottle, which he emptied into his own hand.
He was ‘observed picking out crack cocaine rocks’ and handed four of the rocks to the agent in exchange for $40, according to the report.
The rocks tested positive for cocaine and a short time later Simmons was arrested without incident and transported to St Lucie County Jail.
He is being held in lieu of $55,000 bond.
Simmons has been repeatedly convicted for possessing, purchasing, and selling cocaine, spending nearly 17 years in Florida prisons since 1991.
He was just released from prison in February after spending more than three years in prison for cocaine possession and tampering with evidence.
Simmons is also a registered sex offender. He was found guilty of lewd or lascivious exhibition in the presence of a victim under 16 years of age in 2004.
