New Jersey governor Chris Christie said Friday on WFAN’s Boomer and Carton that he couldn’t take his eyes off of a video of Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil smoking marijuana out of a gas mask.

Tunsil, who was selected Thursday by the Dolphins with the No. 13 pick in the NFL draft, reportedly had both his Twitter and Instagram accounts hacked just before the draft began. A video of Tunsil smoking out of a bong was posted to his Twitter account ahead of his selection.

“It’s unbelievable,” Christie said of the video. “Because the bong hits aren’t enough. Give me the gas mask too. It’s incredible. I can’t take my eyes off it. It’s unbelievable.”

Christie, who opposes the legalization of marijuana, said he would have arrested Tunsil if he was still a prosecutor.

“When I was a prosecutor, I would’ve gone in and cuffed this guy,” Christie said. “I would’ve been all over it.”
