Former Fresno pot dispensary owner headed to trial

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

A judge has decided there's enough evidence for an attempted kidnapping trial against a former pot dispensary owner who's now running for mayor of Fresno.

Rick Morse and his son, Brandon, are charged with trying to kidnap a city attorney in May 2010.

Michael Flores had filed an injunction to close the Morses' medical marijuana dispensary in the Tower District.

The Morses claimed they were making a citizen's arrest as they tried to handcuff Flores outside the civil courthouse.

Investigators say they were trying to illegally take Flores to Sacramento.
