Police: Dad Insults Family Cat After Accidentally Eating Pot Brownies
Do you remember leaving your favorite snack lying around the house, only to have your dad mindlessly eat it? Well, one dad from Omaha, Nebraska probably won’t be doing that any more.
On Tuesday, the anonymous 53-year-old man was unloading groceries from his car, when he spotted some brownies on the backseat. Presumably feeling peckish, he ate four of them.
Little did he know the brownies belonged to his adult children, and that they contained marijuana.
Later in the evening, the man and his wife watched TV, and the latter noticed her husband was acting strangely. After trying in vain to reach their children, she called 911, saying her husband was displaying signs of “bad anxiety.”
When police showed up, they found the man “crawling around on the floor, randomly using profanities, and calling the family cat ‘a b**ch,’” according to the Omaha World-Herald.
Fortunately, one of the couple’s sons showed up to explain that he was “pretty sure it was just marijuana in the brownies.” The dad’s claims that he felt like he was “trippin’” only reinforced this hypothesis.
Police have declared that the investigation is closed. Paramedics put the man to bed, recommending that the family reach out should his condition worsen.
Hopefully, the cat will be forgiven in time for such uncalled-for profanities.
