Man Killed, Nearly Decapitated, by Own Marijuana Booby Trap

Man Killed, Nearly Decapitated, by Own Marijuana Booby Trap

A New York man who booby-trapped the area around marijuana plants on his property died Saturday after he nearly decapitated himself by driving into one of the traps–a nearly-invisible wire. 

Daniel R. Ricketts, 50, was driving his all-terrain vehicle around 2:30 PM on his property in Berne, New York, when the accident occurred. 

Albany County Sheriff Craig D. Apple said the wire appeared to be a kind used in pianos. Other booby traps included barbed wire and a leg trap akin to a coyote trap. 

Apple said there may have been alcohol involved in the accident.
