Man Arrested For Beating His Brother With 3-Foot Marijuana Plants

Rodney Brown of Lakeland, Florida was arrested this weekend after allegedly beating his brother with "spiky" pot plants at the home that they share.

Brown, 31, got into a verbal altercation with his brother Jackie, 33, on Saturday night, according to WPTV 5. Jackie told police that Rodney then "uprooted several cannabis plants in varying lengths up to three feet" from their backyard and hit him in the face with them.

Rodney was arrested on charges of domestic battery and cultivation and possession of marijuana after cops found 10 marijuana plants and drug paraphernalia on the property. It appears Jackie was not charged.
