Ohio Man Who Claims He Got 'Too High' Is Discovered by Police Surrounded by Snacks



An Austintown man called 911 this week to report a crime — he was "too high" from smoking marijuana and couldn't feel his hands, the Youngstown Vindicator reports.

When police arrived to his Westminister Avenue abode, they found the 22-year-old man curled in the fetal position and surrounded by snacks, including Doritos, Goldfish, and Chips Ahoy cookies.

"A glass pipe with marijuana residue, two packs of rolling papers, two roaches and a glass jar of marijuana were recovered from the man’s car after he gave the keys to police. The man declined medical treatment at the home Friday night," the Vindicator says.

As of Monday, Austintown police had not issued any charges for the man.
