The intoxicated man who was arrested told cops he makes 1,000 wishes daily.

April 15--A Bryan man asked a 911 dispatcher to have a paramedic bring him marijuana and was charged with resisting arrest and public intoxication after police arrived, authorities said.

Authorities said the 22-year-old called 911 from his home Sunday morning and asked to have his shoulder and knees checked by paramedics. He went on to ask that they bring marijuana with them, according to the police report.

Officers, who found the man at a grocery store, said the man was complaining about an injured shoulder and "said everything was hurting."

The man said "he wanted to go to Lake Bryan" and that "he makes 1,000 wishes a day," the report states.

When asked if he had consumed any drugs, the man said he had been drinking and that he had taken drugs, but couldn't remember which kind, officials said.

As officers were attempting to arrest the man on a public intoxication charge, police said, the man tried to kick two officers, resulting in the resisting arrest charge. Both charges are misdemeanors.

Once at the Brazos County Jail, authorities said, the man admitted to using cocaine.

He was released from jail Sunday afternoon.
