7-Year-Old Forced to Smoke Pot at Gunpoint
"Honestly officer, I didn't mean to get high. Someone pointed a gun to my head and made me do it."
"Yeah, likely story, kid."
"No, seriously. I'm a seven-year-old and some crazy f'n mad man pointed a gun to my head and forced me to smoke pot."
Not true quotes. True story though.
Justin Blake Mitchell, 26, was arrested in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida after going on a bizarre crime screen that included forcing a kid to take a hit.
According to The Northwest Florida Daily News, Mitchell started by whipping out a gun and pointing it at his own wife's head. He threatened to kill her, and robbed her of personal possessions and cash.
He then pointed the gun at a 7-year-old boy, and forced him to smoke pot.
Whether the boy was related to Mitchell or his wife has not been released.
Mitchell also stands accused of stealing a man's debit card and robbing another woman.
All in all he now faces charges of aggravated battery using a deadly weapon, three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, child abuse, grand theft of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana, two counts of felony larceny and two counts of misdemeanor larceny.
While this did all go down in Florida, we should note for you WTF Florida purists out there, that Mitchell is a resident of Georgia.
