With some help from methamphetamine, a 38-year-old allegedly attempted to take in the scenery and snap some pics of a Northern California vineyard. Last week’s impromptu photoshoot didn’t go as planned — the man ended up stuck inside one of the property’s fans with plenty of time to cool off. As the Huffington Post reported, the man was inside the vineyard fan for two days.
A deputy from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s office noticed the man’s hat on a piece of farming equipment inside the vineyard before finding the hat’s owner. The sheriff’s office released a statement pertaining to the unusual events: “The man (inside of the fan) indicated he liked to take pictures of the engines of old farm equipment. After a thorough investigation, which revealed the farm equipment wasn’t antique and the man had far more methamphetamine than camera equipment, the motivation to climb into the fan shaft remains a total mystery.”
Firefighters were needed to remove the man from inside of the fan, which is used to circulate air and keep grapes from freezing. After the amateur photographer was removed from the tight quarters, he received medical attention and will reportedly make a full recovery.
Despite being freed from the fan, the 38-year-old still finds himself in a bind. According to the sheriff’s department, he’ll be charged with drug possession, trespassing and violations of probation.
Future vineyard guests are encouraged to partake in some wine rather than meth.
