All he wanted was some free legal information. Unfortunately for the 21-year-old Robert Michelson, he made the call to 911, instead of calling a lawyer. Now he is facing multiple drug charges, as a result.
In a soundtape of a 911 call made Thursday night made available by the police, you can hear Michelson asking how in how much trouble he could get in for growing 1 cannabis plant.You can hear the dispatcher advising Robert that he could be nailed, Robert can be heard thanking the officers and hangs up.
Authorities were able to trace Robert Michelson call back to an address on Waterville Road. Narcotics officers from Farmington went to the house and reportedly discovered that Michelson was cultivating cannabis there. Robert admitted that " he has paid lot's of money on line purchasing all the stuff he needed to cultivate cannabis, including the seeds," officers said. The police seized a small amount of cannabis and several items of marijuana paraphernalia for smoking and cultivating cannabis, police said.
During the phone call with the police, Robert Michelson is asked what his emergency is, and he replies "Uh, letís not get into that yet." It all goes worse from there for Robert Michelson, who now knows that he can get arrested for growing just 1 cannabis plant.
"Well, I have a legal question," Robert Michelson replied. The officer asked, "Is there life in danger or an active crime in progress?"Robert Michelson said, "The possibility of a crime in progress."
After the question "whatís going on," by the officer, Robert answered, "I was just cultivating some cannabis and I was just thinking ,how much problems someone can get for 1 pot plant."
After the officer asked in what stage the weed plant was , Michelson responded that the seed just sprouted. The officer then told him he could get nailed for possessing marijuana, so Michelson thanked him polite and hung up. After that, police officers traced the call and hunted him down.
Michelson was charged with possession of cannabis paraphernalia in a marijuana nursery, possession of about 100grams (4 ounces) of marijuana, illegal growing of pot and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
But before leaving the police station , Michelson gave the final bye bye to the dispatch officer who "helped him out": two middle fingers, Police officers said.
