Paranoid Pot Grower Accidentally Turns Himself In
There's being cautious and then there's this guy.
A Florida man, also a pot grower, panicked after hearing a helicopter so he called 911 on himself... only to find out nobody was after him.
UPI.com reports the 47-year-old man heard a helicopter hovering over the storage unit that he grew his marijuana in. He assumed police were there to arrest him for his illegal activity so he immediately called 911.
"I'm the guy they're looking for," the Orlando Sentinel quoted him as telling the dispatcher. He said he wanted to surrender without being shot."
However, his paranoia got the best of him because police weren't looking for him. The helicopter was actually a local news station covering a story at a home near his storage unit.
The man was arrested and charged with cultivating cannabis within 1,000 feet of a school and possession of marijuana with intent to sell. Oops.
