So much for living high on the hog.

An Ohio man allegedly went on a bender after his pet pig ate his stash of pot.

On Sunday, deputies in Washington County, Ohio arrested Chad Spohn, 44, on disorderly conduct charges that started after he discovered Millie, his beloved pet, had gobbled up his marijuana, The Smoking Gun reports.

Deputies arrived at Spohn's house after he called 911 several times and said he was having suicidal thoughts. During one call, he said he was holding a butcher's knife to his own throat, according to the police report.

Spohn's wife, Heather, told officers that her husband was already depressed because of their pending divorce before discovering the pig got into his cannabis.. She said Spohn then downed an entire bottle of Everclear, a strong alcohol, WHIO.com reports.

HIs wife told officers that Spohn gets very upset when he doesn’t have marijuana, the Daily Caller reports.

In order to arrest him, officers subdued Spohn with a Taser. He was charged with disorderly conduct by intoxication and resisting arrest, both misdemeanors, and later released, according to The Smoking Gun.

Spohn is out of custody, WHIO.com reports, but Millie may not be in his life much longer, according to a Facebook post dated Jan. 30, two days before his arrest.

"Anyone want a pig? She is free and comes with food and cage," he wrote. "She is house broken as long as you show her where to go. If you have a dog, she will follow it. I just dont have time for her anymore."
