Maybe he was one of Robin Hood’s really merry men?

A Washington man fastened a bag of marijuana to an arrow and tried to shoot it into a county jail, authorities said.

David Wayne Jordan, 36, of Bellingham, later claimed he was aiming at a squirrel, The Bellingham Herald reported.

“He had no explanation as to why squirrel hunting requires attaching marijuana to an arrow," Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo told the paper.

 

 

A sheriff’s employee saw the pot archer hop out of his Ford pickup with a bow and arrow on Tuesday morning, Elfo said. The employee watched as he aimed high and loosed a special delivery toward the mesh screen of an open-air exercise yard.

In theory, an expert marksman might squeeze a perfectly fired arrow through the screen. But Jordan’s arrow clanged onto the roof, Elfo said.

The baggie contained a few grams of pot and as well as an unknown substance.

Jordan took off, but the sheriff’s employee wrote down his license plate number. Law enforcement officials were banging on his door shortly after.

 

They eventually forced their way inside with a warrant, when Jordan refused to let them in, authorities said.

He confessed to shooting the arrow but claimed he was hunting.

Jordan had previously served 20 days in the Whatcom jail for assault and resisting arrest. He was released Aug. 23.

Deputies booked him again Tuesday on charges of introducing contraband to a corrections facility in the third degree, resisting arrest and obstructing law enforcement.
