Man Arrested After Shooting Pot-Laden Arrow into Jail

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash.) -- A 36-year-old man was arrested Tuesday after trying to shoot an arrow he'd rigged with a baggie of marijuana into the recreation area of a Washington State jail from which he was recently released.

According to the Bellingham Herald, David Wayne Jordan missed, and the shot landed on the roof of Whatcom County Jail. An eyewitness took note of the situation, and of Jordan's license plate as he drove away from the scene. Jordan was arrested later in the day at his home after a brief standoff with cops.

Jordan later admitted shooting the arrow, but that he was aiming for a squirrel. "He had no explanation as to why squirrel hunting requires attaching marijuana to an arrow," said Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo.

Jordan, who was released from jail on charges of assault and resisting arrest only last week, was re-booked on suspicion of introducing contraband to a corrections facility in the third degree, resisting arrest and obstructing law enforcement.
