A Morgan Mill man called 9-1-1 about 6 a.m. Friday morning claiming to have been shot by his roommate.
When deputies arrived on scene, they quickly realized the claim was false.
“When we got out there he was extremely high,” said Erath County Sheriff Matt Coates. “And there was drug paraphernalia everywhere.”
Zachary Jean Moore, 25, was taken into custody and transported to the Erath County Jail.
This is Moore’s third arrest for drugs just this year.
In April he was arrested for manufacturing or delivery of a controlled substance and in June he was arrested for possession of marijuana.
