Five Teens Accused in Attack Over Pot Plant

HOLIDAY, Fla. (AP) -- Police say five Pasco County teens face multiple charges in an attack on their neighbors over a home-grown marijuana plant.
According to police, three boys and two girls broke into a Holiday home Friday evening and dragged a woman out of the home. When a man ran out to help her, police say they beat him with a baseball bat and metal pipe.
Pasco Sheriff's spokesman Doug Tobin says the teens believed the man had stolen their pot plant.
The Tampa Bay Times reports the man suffered severe damage to his face, including possible fractures.
The teens, ages 15 to 17, are charged with aggravated burglary with a deadly weapon and attempted burglary.
The Times reports police did not find the marijuana plant.
