One of the hazards of a person going to a hospital with suspicious injuries and sparse information is that it may bring the authorities into an investigation. Hospital authorities may possibly have a legal duty to report certain suspicious circumstances to the police. Recently, a man went to a North Carolina hospital for burn injuries and got more treatment than he wanted. He's now waiting for drug charges because hospital authorities called the police under circumstances that may or may not have been justified.
A conviction on drug charges in the state of North Carolina can net someone a lengthy jail sentence. However, some types of drug operations can also endanger the health of the public and responding officers. Meth labs can be extremely dangerous to people and one man is accused of running one out of his home. The man is now facing a host of drug charges related to his alleged manufacturing facility.
