Police Discover 9-Foot Marijuana Plant on Domestic Dispute Call

When Clayton County sheriff’s deputies responded to a domestic dispute earlier this month, they instead found a 9-foot-tall marijuana plant and another 4-foot-tall plant, according to the Atlanta Journal Constituition.

The incident began Sept. 7 on Mockingbird Trail when Diane Hazelrigs told authorities her 30-year-old son, Douglas Hazelrigs, left her house threatening to shoot her when he returned, according to the sheriff’s office. He was yelling and using profane language, the woman said.

She then pointed out two houses on the neighboring street of Hummingbird Way where her son is known to hang out with brothers Michael McGuoirk and William McGuoirk, authorities said.

“Deputies were told that Michael’s brother William had given him seeds so that he could grow a plant of his own and that they would find a much larger plant where William lived on the same street,” the sheriff’s office said.
