PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla., July 31 (UPI) -- A Port St. Lucie, Fla., man was arrested for allegedly robbing and shooting at a drug dealer he said gave him hamburger meat instead of pot, authorities say.

Timethy Delarrance Morrison, 22, was charged Thursday with attempted murder, burglary, escape, possession of marijuana and providing a false name to a law enforcement officer, TCPalm.com reported.

The alleged victim said he was to meet Morrison Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. behind a gas station to sell him $100 worth of marijuana. The dealer said Morrison walked up to his car and demanded the drugs. He said that he then gave Morrison a white paper bag and then sped away.

Morrison told police he looked in the bag and found hamburger meat instead of drugs and then began firing at the dealer's car.

When police arrived at an apartment building in Port St. Lucie Thursday afternoon to arrest Morrison, he fled on foot. However he was apprehended shortly afterward near the apartment building. Detectives said they found 4.7 grams of marijuana in his possession.

Morrison was being held without bail in the St. Lucie County Jail.
