Laurel County man arrested after eating mulch

Today's smheadline comes from Laurel County, where a 38-year-old man was arrested Tuesday night after eating mulch. According to the Laurel County Sheriff Department's Facebook page, police received complaints about an intoxicated man eating mulch from the landscaping of a hotel off Highway 770, and when dispatched, they found the man, Johnny Wayne Hurt, in a hotel room he had torn apart. Hurt, "manifestly under the influence of a controlled substance," had taken the drawers out of the dressers and thrown the mattresses against the wall. He was charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and criminal mischief. That mulch isn't going to feel good coming out, either. [WKYT] [Facebook]
