What do you do if you bought drugs but believe you got scammed?
Well, if you’re 49-year-old Douglas Kelly you go to the cops — and get yourself arrested.
Douglas Peter Kelly, 49, of Hawthorne, near Gainesville, told sheriff’s detectives he had a “violent reaction” to smoking some methamphetamine and he wanted to “press charges” against the person who sold him the illegal hallucinogen about a week earlier, investigators said.
Drug unit detectives invited Kelly to come in Tuesday so they could test the drug for him.
He drove to the sheriff’s office and handed them a crystal-like substance wrapped in aluminum foil. It tested positive for methamphetamine, detectives said.
Kelly was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine.
He was walked next door to the Putnam County Jail and was being held on $5,000 bond.
What did he think was going to happen?
