An adjunct professor of film at the College of Staten Island has been charged with possession of heroin.
A lot of heroin, according to the Staten Island Advance.
Police said they found 66 glassine bags of film noir‘s favorite drug Monday night when they raided the home of Christopher Nuzzi in Pierpont Place. It’s enough powder to charge him with possession with intent to sell, along with third-, fifth- and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, police told the Advance.
Nuzzi – noted in student reviews as an easy A – has worked as an adjunct lecturer in the media culture department since 2001, a college spokesman told the Advance. He is not accused of any illegal activity on the college campus, however.
He was arraigned in Stapleton Criminal Court Tuesday, where he asked to be entered into a drug treatment program, law enforcement officials said.
Online student reviews consistently say his classes are easy. “He tells you WORD for WORD what is on the midterm/final,” one student said, echoing what many others reported. Another said, “I fell asleep and left class the whole semester. I got an A.”
The man – allegedly – does know how to relax.
