A Nebraska man who mistakenly ate some of his adult children’s pot brownies told police that he was “trippin” as he crawled on the floor, “randomly used profanities,” and called the family cat a “bitch,” according to an incident report.
Police say that Michael Gollehon, 53, ate four brownies that he found on the back seat of a car that his children had borrowed earlier on Tuesday. (Gollehon discovered the sweets while retrieving groceries from the vehicle’s back seat).
At around 7:30pm, Gollehon’s wife told Omaha police, the couple was watching television when “Michael started getting bad anxiety.”
Julie Gollehon tried to contact her children to determine what was in the brownies, but failed to reach them.
While paramedics responding to an overdose call found Gollehon’s vitals in the normal range, “Michael was displaying odd behaviour (crawling around on the floor, calling their cat a ‘bitch,’ randomly using profanities and saying he feels like ‘he’s trippin’),” officers noted.
Gollehon was helped to bed by the medical workers, and officers told the couple to “call 911 again if his situation got any worse.”
While police were in the Gollehon home, one of their children arrived and said that the brownies were the property of “his siblings,” adding that he was “pretty sure it was just marijuana in the brownies.” Julie Gollehon, investigators noted, “wished not to give her children’s names because she thought they could get in trouble.”
