911? A cop chased me up a tree ...
ST. CLOUD, Minn. - It might not have been the smartest phone call he ever made. Jeremy Conrad Cornick, 30, called police Tuesday to say he had been chased up a tree by narcotics officers from a county in the southern part of the state.
St. Cloud police officers indeed found Cornick, of Crystal, up a tree with his cell phone, but they determined he was hallucinating and under the influence of controlled substances.
As officers were trying to talk Cornick down from the tree, he lost his grip and fell. While he wasn't hurt, he was taken to St. Cloud Hospital for evaluation.
When his probation officer got word of what happened, he issued an arrest warrant, and Cornick was taken from the hospital to jail.
