Snack Attack

A man in Austintown, Ohio, called 911 for help. The problem: he was “too high” on “weed.” Police were sent to back up the ambulance crew, and an officer found the 22-year-old unnamed man “on the floor in the fetal position.” The officer was pretty sure it was the right guy: the man was “surrounded by a plethora of Doritos, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, and Chips Ahoy cookies,” his report noted. Police confiscated his marijuana and paraphernalia. Despite saying he couldn’t feel his hands, the man declined medical care, and police declined to charge him with any crime.
