St. Kts: What was the minister smoking when he did this?

In St. Vincent last month, Dr. Jerrol Thompson, Minister of Communications signed  a bail bond for one of his constituents charged with drug possession.  However, two weeks later Minister Thompson surrendered the bail bond and no longer remained one of the accused sureties.  This is what he had to say:

“I am surrendering the bail today because I recognized, after personal reflection and discussion with my colleagues, that I had made an error of judgement in signing the surety.” 

He then pledged his commitment and that of the government to fight against trafficking and illegal drugs.
I know pols will do anything for a vote, but this is ridiculous.
