A call to 911 reveals more than what police expected. They were called to investigate gunfire near an Oklahoma County home. When they showed up they didn't find a gun but discovered a whole lot more.

His name is Sir John Michael.

"I saw the police helicopter circling around very low, and last week they were doing the same thing, because I was laying out nude. I thought they were looking at me," Sir John Michael said.

This time around, however, he was sporting his underwear over a pair of women's leggings.

"If life gives you lemons, **** life," Sir John Michael said.

But his landlord gave Oklahoma County authorities more than lemons when they showed up to the property where he lived.

"When they walked into the house they smelled a very strong odor associated with marijuana," Mark Myers of the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies found 50 marijuana plants and several bags of pot that had already been processed.

Police got a call after someone said they heard gunshots. It turned out those gunshots weren't really gunshots. Sir John Michael was working on his car, and he got a little aggravated.

"I was working on my car this morning, and it didn't work," he said. "I got flustered, busted my window and that was supposedly a gun shot."

He said before he knew it a police helicopter was flying over his place once again.

"I guess they called back up. I heard some sirens and through the forest to the west a half a dozen guys with their guns drawn on me said 'Put down the gun,' and I was twirling my ponytail."

Sir John Michael and his ponytail were soon on the ground. Sir John doesn't actually live inside the home where deputies found the marijuana. He lives in a school bus nearby.

His landlord, David Mason, was taken into police custody, and so was his marijuana.

"I don't think that's an issue," Sir John Michael said. "I think cannabis should be legal."

Sir John Michael said he will bond Mason out of jail.
