Upstate New York on this one...........a town called Berne.....50 year old Daniel Ricketts (nice name) was killed by some booby traps that HE HIMSELF HAD SET to protect the marijuana plants he was growing on his property. According to Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, Ricketts was driving an ATV in the backyard of his property at around 2:30 P.M. this past Saturday when he was nearly decapitated after running into a fine, nearly invisible piano-type wire that he had set up as a fortification around his marijuana plants. According to Sheriff Apple, an investigation is underway, but it is believed alcohol was a factor in the accident.
Gee, there's a surprise!
So, this big dope sets up a booby trap to protect his marijuana plants and then gets killed by his own booby trap. That's one of the problems with marijuana....it does tend to make you a little forgetful.
