MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- A man who willingly took synthetic drugs despite the embarrassing side effects wound up causing a ruckus recently at College Grove Apartments when he jumped from a balcony to prove he was a god.
The incident occurred Sept. 28 at about 5:30 p.m. in the 1500 block of Lascassas Pike, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report filed by Officer Carl Wilkins, who had the unfortunate task of having to chase down the blood-soaked, 24-year-old Georgia native.
“Upon arrival, I made contact with (the man), who was covered in blood,” Wilkins said in the report. “(The man) was stating strange utterances and had severe cuts (on his body,) and he got up and jumped off the second floor balcony.”
His daring leap came only a few minutes before police arrived when the man “jumped out of the third-floor window” of an apartment in the 1100 building and punched out several other windows “while saying he was a god,” according to the report.
Not to be outdone by others who have dared to take synthetic drugs, the man also demanded a rocket so that he could “fly to the farthest star.”
“After (the man) jumped off the balcony, we detained him and notified Rutherford County Emergency Medical Services,” Wilkins said, adding that the man kept trying to hurt himself and even yelled at fellow officers several times to, “Kill me – shotgun to the face!”
Needless to say, the man was taken to the hospital for the various injuries he suffered in the incident. Although the man and his roommates will probably not face any serious charges, police did confiscate the remaining drugs and issued misdemeanor citations.
