Reminder: When Committing a Crime, Don't Call 911 for Legal Advice
Robert Michelson learned the hard way that you shouldn't call 911 for free legal advice on growing marijuana.
After the 21 year-old Connecticut man asked a dispatcher how much trouble growing one plant could bring him, Farmington police quickly tracked the call to his home, where he was arrested for drug possession.
Said one officer, "It's a first."
The actual 911 call can be heard here.
