Accidental Shooting in Ohio Leads to Someone Else's Arrest for Growing Pot

Local news reports
Officers responded to a home at 9050 Tarlton Rd., Lot B in Stoutsville Thursday at 3:26 p.m.
When they arrived, deputies found a man disabled by a gunshot wound to the upper body and unable to speak because of his injuries.  

While investigating the shooting and processing the scene, deputies reported locating a large indoor garden of marijuana inside the victim’s home.  A search warrant allowed a more thorough look through the house and deputies reported finding two growing rooms with 302 plants weighing a total of eight pounds. They seized the plants as well as currency and firearms.

Taken into custody was another resident of the house, Stanley L. Crosby, 51, who was charged with possession of marijuana, cultivation of marijuana and trafficking in marijuana. All charges were felonies, according to a release from Sheriff Dave Phalen’s office.

The shooting victim may also face criminal charges related to the plants, but his name will not be released until charges are filed.
I suppose they might get around to charging the wounded guy, but not for his gun negligence.
