Police say a Connecticut man called 911 to ask a dispatcher how much trouble he could get into by growing one marijuana plant, then was arrested.

Robert Michelson, 21, called 9-1-1 to ask a little legal advice. He wanted to know how much trouble he could be in for growing a marijuana plant.

Police traced the call to a house at 192 Waterville Road in Farmington, Connecticut, and arrested Robert Michelson.

The 9-1-1 Dispatcher asks: Is it life threatening or an active crime in progress?
