In my criminal defense practice, I've had my share of goofy clients. I once represented a guy who stuck a freshwater salmon down his pants and tried to make a run for it. Another one asked me to call the police to report a deli for selling illegal German bratwurst. According to the older gentleman, the deli was selling fake bratwurst because it did not taste the way bratwurst tasted in his native Bavaria. A third gem got caught stealing bras from Victoria's Secret. The 300 pound man would put the bras on in the store and simply walk out. What a way for your wife to find out your cheating on her. The bras were for a girlfriend. They would be in good company with this next guy.
Connecticut's WTNH reports that a 21 year old Farmington man was arrested after calling 911 for some free legal advice. After admitting he was growing marijuana, Robert Michelson asked the dispatcher how much trouble he could get into for growing one plant. Police soon tracked him down and arrested him on a variety of charges including marijuana possession. He allegedly admitted to buying seeds and equipment for growing. Farmington Officer Marshall Porter stated that Michelson had done it to make his mother angry. Nevertheless, he was able to get out on a $5000 bond. We can only speculate that mom was nice enough to bail him out.
