Sturgeon Bay man arrested after bad acid trip


STURGEON BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – A man tripping on acid was arrested by Sturgeon Bay Police last week on charges of disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property.

On Oct. 23, a 2:30 a.m., police were called to the 400 block of N 6th Ave for the report of a man “yelling and banging on a home’s front door.” When Sturgeon Bay officers arrived on scene, they found a 21-year-old Sturgeon Bay man face down on the sidewalk. He was wearing shorts and a t-shirt, and was “soaking wet, believed to be from sweating,” according to police.

Police say they attempted to help the man but he screamed and swore at officers. While in the back of a squad, he banged his head on the cage, injuring himself.

Also, police say he had broken the door he was banging on.

The suspect was taken to a hospital for treatment, and admitted he had taken acid, police say.

Later, he was taken to jail on criminal charges of disorderly conduct, criminal damage to property, and felony bail jumping. He was out on felony bond conditions from another criminal case.

The suspect told police he took two hits of acid, but no other drugs. He could not remember the events of his arrest, and would not tell police where he got the acid.
