Sgt. Mankins was not certain how much marijuana the pig had eaten.

Deputies had to utilize their taser to get Spohn in to custody. He was booked in to the Washington County jail on two misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct by intoxication. A check of the jail’s roster shows Spohn is no longer in custody.

A post to his Facebook page states he is giving away his pig, her food and cage for free, that he doesn’t have time for her anymore.
