HUNTINGTON — The following information was provided by reports from the Cabell County Sheriff’s Office:
DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY: A man who admitted to having smoked meth around six hours earlier was detained early Tuesday morning after barricading himself in an exam room at HIMG in Huntington.
The 47-year-old Huntington man, listed in reports as homeless, had been hallucinating in a taxi cab around 6:40 a.m. when Cabell County 911 was first called. As police made their way to respond, dispatchers were told the man had jumped out of the cab near a gas station at the 29th Street exit and was actively trying to get into vehicles parked outside a nearby restaurant, reports state.
Police arrived to find the man had crossed U.S. 60 and had run into HIMG, where he had rushed into an exam room and barricaded himself with a physical therapy exam table — all while throwing objects and yelling unintelligible phrases.
After several calls to come out, the man opened the door and was placed in mechanical restraints, saying he was hearing voices and experiencing visual hallucinations. Damage to the exam table and door latch is estimated at around $1,080.
The man was refused by Western Regional Jail for dangerously high blood pressure and was instead taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center, where he was seen by a doctor and a recovery coach. He was also referred to further mental health treatment.
