Boyd Gene Wiley, a 47-year-old Florida man who apparently really loves him some weed, marched into a local sheriff's office Monday and accused detectives of stealing his massive crop of marijuana plants, police said. Wiley wanted to complain to a supervisor that he was growing medical marijuana, but since that's still totally illegal in Florida, the man was arrested on the spot.
A housing code enforcement officer spotted a few plants during a routine inspection of Wiley's property last Friday, according to the sheriff's office. When a group of detectives drove over to see what was up, they found 91 marijuana plants, and spent the next few hours "eradicating" them.
The detectives had been trying to track down who owned the property for a few days when Wiley walked into the sheriff's office to complain about his stolen weed, and pegged the blame on the cops. He was arrested on production of marijuana charges, which is a felony, and was released on a $1004 bond later that night.
Somehow, the fiasco didn't end there. On Thursday, Wiley was arrested for the second time after he allegedly slammed a neighbor who owed him money over the head with a shovel. He called the cops again, this time to let them know he had been hit in the face during the brawl. Wiley was arrested for aggravated battery, and again released on bail.
