Everything is not okay in Okay, Oklahoma…

Sometimes they say the story writes itself. Well, this story about a city councilman in Okay, Oklahoma, who smoked synthetic marijuana, talked to his horse Cherokee, and then got tazed by the town's sheriff is one of those stories.

From KTUL:

A city councilor in a rural Oklahoma town is calling for the dismissal of the town's police chief after the chief used a Taser on the councilor.

Paco Frye is on the city council in Okay, Oklahoma, in Wagoner County about 50 miles southeast of Tulsa.

Frye said the police chief used a Taser on him last month while he was outside his house smoking potpourri, or synthetic marijuana.

"I get high to take care of my pain," Frye said.

Frye said he was outside talking to his horse, Cherokee.

Police Chief Fred Winters said he received calls from neighbors saying Frye was talking extremely loud and appeared to have overdosed.

"They said they'd been listening to him for over three hours," Winters said. "He wasn't himself, even for Mr. Frye."

Yeah, that's pretty amazing, but know what's even better???

She's doing her best to distract people's attention away from the issue.
