We at HuffPost Comedy love us some stupid criminals, especially when said criminals call 911 on themselves. That's why we got such a kick out of this latest criminal misstep where 21-year-old Robert Michelson called 911 to ask how much trouble he could get into for his pot plant.
The Farmington, Conn. man's call is hysterical, beginning with the 911 dispatcher's reaction. When she asks for his location he says, "let's not get into that just yet." When she asks if the situation is life-threatening or if there is a crime in progress, Michelson casually replies,
"Possibly a crime in progress."
Since he called from his home phone, it didn't take long for narcotics officers to show up at his house to find paraphernalia and a small amount of pot.
WTNH News say Michelson told officers he made the call "because he wanted to make his mother angry," but that isn't even the best part of the story. They also say that after he was brought into the police station for processing, as he exited he "spun around and stuck both middle fingers up at the dispatchers."
"Presumably for doing such a good job," police said.
