Earlier this week a Bellingham, Washington man was released from jail.  While most people would be pretty happy to be free, this man obviously had some unfinished business.  Three days later the man was seen pulling his truck over by the jail and firing an arrow…yes we said arrow (and no it was not a flaming one)…into the jail exercise yard.  Unfortunately for the man, the exercise yard is covered by a thin metal mesh (a screen) and instead of threading the needle and landing the arrow safely into the exercise yard, the arrow clanged against the screen and landed on top of it. 

The crazy thing about this archery exhibition wasn’t the fact that he shot an arrow, but pot arrow caughtrather what was attached to the arrow.  When officersretrieved the lone arrow, they found a baggie of marijuana attached to it.  The man was eventually tracked down after corrections officers tracked his license plates.  He was booked on charges of introducing contraband to a corrections facility in the third degree, resisting arrest and obstructing law enforcement.  Read the original story below.
