BELLINGHAM, WA - A Bellingham man wrapped a baggie of marijuana around an arrow and fired it at the second-floor recreation area of Whatcom County Jail on Tuesday morning, Aug. 27, according to the sheriff's office.

David Wayne Jordan, 36, later claimed he had been aiming at a squirrel.

"He had no explanation as to why squirrel hunting requires attaching marijuana to an arrow," said Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo.

A civilian employed by the sheriff's office saw Jordan get out of his red Ford pickup at 8:40 a.m. on the south side of the jail, 311 Grand Ave., with a hunting bow and arrow. He fired the marijuana missile upward toward a mesh screen near the top of the second-floor, fresh-air exercise area for inmates, Elfo said. If fired at a perfect angle, the sheriff added, an arrow might squeeze through the screen.

But, apparently, this marksman was no Robin Hood. The arrow - along with a few grams of marijuana and a yet-to-be-identified substance - missed its target and landed on the roof. Jordan fled the scene in his Ford, but the civilian employee wrote down its license plate, Elfo said.

Deputies found Jordan's pickup hours later parked outside of his home in the 3300 block of McAlpine Road. The bow was still in the Ford.

 Law enforcement officers got a search warrant and forced their way into Jordan's home after he refused to let them in. He admitted to firing off an arrow, but insisted he had been hunting.

Nobody was in the jail's recreation area at the time, so deputies aren't sure if the arrow had an intended recipient.

Earlier this month, Jordan served a 20-day jail sentence for two counts of assault and one count of resisting arrest. He was released Friday, Aug. 23.

Jail officials rebooked him Tuesday evening on suspicion of introducing contraband to a corrections facility in the third degree, resisting arrest and obstructing law enforcement. His current cell is on the first floor.

Maybe he saw the squirrel flying high among the trees and assumed he was a kindred spirit.

Sounds pretty desperate, to get a bag of dried leaves.

It sounds like the dude will be meeting his customers very soon.

Apparently he's not the sharpest arrow in the bow anyway. :p
