News From Gilligan’s Island: Mary Ann (Dawn Wells) Arrested With Pot

Filed under: News & Politics — Bill @ 1:39 pm

Now we know what Mary Ann was growing on her farm before she was stranded on that deserted island in the Pacific with Gilligan & the Skipper.

Everyone remembers Mary Ann, the innocent looking pig-tailed farm girl from the 1960’s TV show “Gilligan’s Island.” Mary Ann was played by actress Dawn Wells.

According to Idaho police reports Dawn Wells (a.k.a. Mary Ann) was pulled over last fall because she was driving erratically. When she rolled down her window the officer noticed a strong odor of marijuana. When asked about it Ms. Wells claimed it must have been from the hitchhiker she had picked up earlier (give her credit for being a quick thinker).

After the officer searched her vehicle they discover not just one half smoked joint, but FOUR (a quick lesson to all you herbalists out there, clean out your ashtray!). In addition they also found two small containers of weed.

It was revealed later in court (according to the Boston Herald) that Mary Ann / Dawn Wells was returning home from her own surprise 69th birthday party. A friend of Wells testified that he had left the pot in her car after using it earlier that day. Wells claimed the reason she was driving erratically was because she was trying to find the heater controls on her new car.

Apparently this farm girl is smarter that she appears. How else could she bake all those pies on a tropical island without an oven?

The Boston Herald went on to add “Under a plea agreement three misdemeanor counts (driving under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a controlled substance) were dropped. She pleaded guilty to one count of reckless driving, paid a fine, must spend five days in jail, and then endure six months of unsupervised probation.”

Naughty naughty sweet little Mary Ann.
Just one more reason to pick Mary Ann over Ginger.
