From SPD Blotter:
When officers contacted the man—who had apparently torn out patches of his own hair—he refused to provide officers with his identity, giving them a fake name. Then he took off running.
Officers chased the man, who stopped mid-flight, picked up a large rock and turned back toward officers. Police told the man to drop the rock, which he did, before he again fled down the street, stripping off his remaining clothing as he ran.
Officers eventually found the now-completely naked suspect lying on his back in a planting strip in the 2000 block of Minor Ave E—about a half-mile from the scene of the original incident—and took him into custody.
The man told officers he had taken cocaine, methamphetamines, LSD and other unidentified drugs earlier in the evening.
After officers arrested the man, he began scratching all over his body, asked officers for his clothes, and then complained he was too hot.
Police weren’t immediately able to identify the man, who was unable to provide police with his real name or home address.
If the guy had tried to throw the rock at someone there is a fair chance it would have been sufficient grounds to shoot him. Don’t get your brain so scrambled with drugs that someone else is justified in scrambling it with lead. The high you get from the drugs isn’t worth the downer from the lead.
