UNC Student Arrested after Acid Trip, Trying To Bite Officer
Drugs are bad...mmmkay?
Just take a lesson from 19-year-old University of Northern Colorado student James Pike, who was arrested last week following an acid trip gone wrong.
According to the Greeley Tribune, officers with the Greeley Police Department followed up on a report of a man acting aggressively. Authorities arrived to the 2000 block of 8th Avenue, just after 2 a.m. on October 5.
The caller reportedly told dispatchers that Pike had taken three-to-four tabs of acid and about 200 milligrams of marijuana. Pike had also removed his clothes and was trying to fight other members of the fraternity.
Pike was still acting aggressively when police arrived and it took three officers to get him into handcuffs.
Once he was in handcuffs, Pike unexpectedly rolled over, sat up and lunged towards an officer, while trying to bite him in the groin. In an attempt to subdue Pike, officers delivered strikes to the suspect's head.
According to the police report, officers were eventually able to gain control of the 19-year-old. He was then taken to North Colorado Medical Center, prior to being booked into the Weld County Jail on suspicion of one count of criminal attempt to commit second-degree assault, which is a felony.
As of Monday, October 14, Pike is out free on bond.
All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in the court of law. An arrest is merely an accusation of a crime by law enforcement.
