Farmington, Conn. (WTNH) - A Farmington man is under arrest after he called 911 and asked the dispatcher how much trouble he could get into for growing marijuana.
Police say Robert J. Michelson called 911 Thursday evening around 8pm.
Dispatcher: 911, what's your emergency?
Michelson: Uh, let's not get into that yet.
Dispatcher: If it's not an emergency you don't call 911 sir.
Michelson: Well, I have a legal question.
Dispatcher: Is it life threatening or an active crime in progress?
Michelson: Crime in progress possibly.
Dispatcher: What's going on?
Michelson: I was just growing some marijuana and I was just wondering what, how much trouble you can get in for one plant.
Dispatcher: You're growing marijuana and you want to know...depends on how big the plant is?
Michelson: It's only a seedling.
Dispatcher: Well, it's possession. You can get pinched for a roach in the car.
Michelson: All right, thanks for the info.
Police were able to track the call to Michelson's Waterville Road home where they found a small amount of marijuana and numerous items used to grow and smoke pot. Michelson admitted to cops that he spent a lot of money online purchasing the cultivation products.
Charges include illegal cultivation, possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on bond, but not before giving the police dispatchers two middle fingers, presumably for doing such a good job.
This was the funniest thing I have read all day...:)
I see a Darwin Award in Michelson’s future.
Why do you think they call it “DOPE”.
SKOWHEGAN, Maine A local man was arrested Monday after trying to get a loan to pay restitution at a branch of the same bank he was convicted of robbing in 2008.
Another Obama voter gets busted.
I believe there is an old saying and this proves that Paranoia is indeed a Deed Destroyer.
Proof that Legalization would reduce drug related calls to 911.
A t.v. show entitled “Stupid Criminals” could be pretty funny! :)
My first chance to post the stoned kitty picture!!
“Who’s there ?”
“Dave’s not here”
“NO man. It’s Dave. Open the door.”
I told you man. Dave’s not here.”
Don’t talk on the phone, man. Cuz the phone is bugged.
Let’s make a dope deal.
Cheech and chong
