This grandfather will do anything for his grandson
LEBANON, Ohio (AP) - August 23, 2010 -- A grandpa is charged with bringing more than a bottle of Old Grand Dad to prison.
Authorities in Ohio accuse 85-year-old Richard Heritz of trying to smuggle more than 20 grams of pot into a prison.
Officials say he wanted to give the illegal weed to his grandson, Gregory Heritz, who's serving time for burglary.
State troopers say they got a tip about what grandpa had in the package.
The elderly man now faces up to seven years in prison if convicted.
