A Florida man shoved his mother to the ground after her dog ate his marijuana, according to police officers who arrested the suspect for domestic battery. Mackenzie Freeman, 25, “became upset” early on Tuesday morning “after his mother’s dog ate his marijuana,” a criminal complaint notes.
The 6’ 2”, 222-pound Freeman argued with his 57-year-old mother in the pair’s Largo home before he allegedly pushed her to the ground and hit her in the head with a pair of pants. Freeman also “punched several holes in the walls,” police reported.
Court filings do not indicate how much marijuana was consumed by the dog, or if the animal suffered adverse effects from ingesting the pot.
When officers arrived at the residence, Freeman ran off, but was eventually apprehended after a brief foot chase. He was returned to the residence, where police found a marijuana pipe “in plain view” in the living room.
After being read his rights, Freeman reportedly claimed ownership of the pipe and “admitted to pushing his mother down and hitting her in the head with his pants.”
A Largo Police Department officer noted in the complaint that Freeman stated that his mother "deserved it."
Freeman was charged with three misdemeanors: domestic battery, possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting an officer without violence. He was released from jail late on Tuesday afternoon on his own recognizance.
Freeman has prior arrests for theft, burglary, and narcotics possession.
