Robert Michelson, 21, just had a question for the 911 operator. He wanted to know how much trouble he could get into for growing one marijuana plant— “just a seedling” he clarified. The operator replied he could be arrested, he said “thank you” and hung up. The problem? He called from his home phone number and the police responded, searched his home, found a small amount of paraphernalia and arrested him.
He admitted spending a lot of money for the equipment when questioned by the police. Out on $5,000 bond, he flashed two middle fingers at police officers when leaving the detention center. “Presumably for doing such a good job,” the police said in a statement.
