When officers arrived on scene, the 19 year old fled the 10 Box parking lot, running into oncoming traffic.
"The male was sweating profusely and was making paranoid statements (claiming that unrelated vehicles were following him an so on)," one of the responding officers wrote of his initial contact with the alleged victim. "I asked the male if he was on anything and he informed me that unknown individuals gave him pills that he did not recognize, which made him feel like he was going to die."
The complainant, identified as 19-year-old Lyndon Cobble, told police he'd been held against his will by a man named Lyndon Cobble for the past few days, noting the alleged suspect, who turned out to be himself, was trying to kill him.
"The male began saying that people were trying to kill him and that he had been held against his will for the last several days," the incident report reads in part. "The male was sweating heavily and he was out of breath. the male provided the name of the person that was trying to kill him. The ID provided turned out to be the male himself."
Because of his mannerisms and the statements Cobble made, he was ultimately arrested and charged with public intoxication Saturday.
"After speaking with the male for several minutes and non of his speech making sense, it was determined he was under the influence of a controlled substance and he was taken into custody," the incident report states.
