Jeffrey Henderson of Redondo Beach got a house call from the California Highway Patrol to talk about his being the victim in a road rage incident, but he wound up being the alleged perp in a home growing marijuana operation, according to KTLA. Following up on the January 7th road rage episode, the CHP found over 600 marijuana plants and other paraphernalia at the home Henderson was renting. He was arrested today for "possession for sale" of marijuana. The CHP also found three pounds of pot and $2,000 in cash on the property.

Authorities estimate the damage to the home due to the grow operation "could be in the tens of thousands."
