Man Charged With Evidence Tampering For Trying To Eat Pot Plants

Deputies say an upstate New York man has been charged with evidence tampering after he was busted for growing marijuana - and then tried to eat the evidence. Jeremy Wheeler and his father, William Wheeler, were arrested Sunday night after deputies said they found 116 plants growing in the son's home in Willet. Deputies said Jeremy Wheeler tried to eat some of the plants while being booked.

The 29-year-old Wheeler was also charged with resisting arrest. His 51-year-old father was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and unlawfully growing the drug.

Both were released on tickets to appear in court at a later date. Deputies didn't know whether the men had lawyers

    I think he just wanted that last high before he went to jail.

    How much did he really think he was going to eat? And by the way, anybody notice they didn't rush him to the hospital for possible overdose? That's right, it's not gonna happen.
