Sioux Falls Man Smokes Marijuana Joint Before Surgery, Police Called
The Sioux Falls Police Department responded to an unusual call from a health care facility.
"We had a person at a local health care facility and was just about to go into surgery," Sioux Falls Police Department Captain Loren McManus told us.
"He took a few moments and stepped outside. He decided to smoke a marijuana joint. When he went back inside, one of the health care providers could smell the odor and recognized what it was."
McManus says that's when the police were called.
"By the time we got there, this individual was already in surgery. But, there was some marijuana found in his personal belongings."
McManus says the man hasn't been arrested yet. But, in his words, "that is forthcoming."
