WEST MONROE, Louisiana — Stay away from whatever this guy is smoking.
A Louisiana man was busted after claiming to cops that a ghost planted drugs on him after he was hit in the head with an axe.
Police say Michael Auttonberry, 59, had no visible wounds to his head when they responded to a report that he had been stabbed at his home in West Monroe, according to an arrest report from the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office, the Smoking Gun reported.
When deputies arrived, Auttonberry not only shouted at them, but also at people “who were obviously not there,” the arrest record said. Officials noted in their report that Auttonberry had not been stabbed in the head with an axe as he’d claimed.
Deputies also were unable to locate the intruders Auttonberry said were in his home.
When officers discovered a pile of crystal meth on his nightstand, Auttonberry allegedly told them that it had to have been planted by a “ghost or intruders” who happened to be climbing out a nearby window.
Auttonberry was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and giving a false police report.
