A Really Bad Trip

River with Water

  A man in Washington state from September 26th to October 3rd terrorized the residents of a rural area. The man broke into a couple’s home and demanded the occupants make him a sandwich. Once the man got what he wanted, he stole a firearm and took off. The man was pursued by police but escaped. Later he was seen in an older woman’s home taking her purse and keys and then her car crashing it a few blocks away but once again evading police.

The last stunt he pulled was to hold up a man and take him hostage. As they drove back into town, he made the man go through a McDonald’s drive-in. The man was finally apprehended in Rainer where his reign of insanity finally came to an end. When the man was taken into custody, the officer noted he was clearly under the influence, but he couldn’t tell on what.

He told them later that he could not remember anything from the week – except stealing a car and that a ‘nice man’ had taken him to McDonald’s. That his irregular behavior was because of a ‘bad trip’
