It wouldn’t be a holiday without one bizarre story to show that people are truly deranged. And for once, it doesn’t involve the state of Florida.

A St. Louis woman figured that her drug dealer was charging her too much on marijuana so she complained to the only people that made sense to her, the police. 54-year old Arlene Starks dialed 911 to complain about her drug dealer’s “price gouging” before an officer showed up to her house, charged her with misusing 911 and took her in custody. Starks spent three days in the county jail before being released on $1,000 bail.
