Ohio police chief says he ate cake laced with pot

LAURELVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio police chief says he ate cake left in his kitchen without realizing it was laced with cannabis oil.

Laurelville Chief Mike Berkemeier says he fell ill after eating the cake a couple of weeks ago and couldn't figure out what was wrong. He says he drove a few blocks to the police station, where medics took him for medical testing.

The Logan Daily News reports Berkemeier was hospitalized for more than a day. While there, a phone call with his daughter revealed the cake had been laced with an oil form of the psychoactive chemical component that causes a high from marijuana.

Berkemeier tells WBNS-TV one of his daughter's friends took the cake to his home, about 35 miles southeast of Columbus.

There's no word of criminal charges.
