PALM SPRINGS-- A volunteer at a Palm Springs marijuana dispensary is behind bars, after police say he refused to cooperate. But witnesses and coworkers are telling a different story.
Just before noon on Wednesday, code enforcement officials showed up to the marajuana dispensary in Palm Springs to check on the damage from a car that went through the storefront window on St. Patricks Day. When the building inspector saw the volunteer in the part of the building that had been red tagged, he immediately called police.
Palm Springs Police say the volunteer was not cooperating, and refused to sign for a citation, so they they arrested him. The volunteer was booked into the Banning jail for obstruction and trespassing.
But coworkers say it didn't happen that way. They say it seemed like the police were trying to get him to sign for something that he didn't do. The co-workers also say the volunteer wasn't in the red tagged part of the building.
But even with a portion of the building red tagged, the business IS still operating as normal.
