Police report describes suspect as ‘tripping balls’

    Melissa Valencia police photo and excerpt from report
    According to police, they responded to a call about a naked female on the loose. “The caller stated that she was intoxicated on drugs and ‘tripping balls.‘” After she was treated at the hospital and came to, the woman admitted to having dropped acid with her boyfriend.

    When Arkansas police got to the scene they found a naked woman, later identified as Melissa Valencia, 21, running naked through the intersection. When approached, she reportedly tried to hide from the officers behind a pole. She spoke, at first, but the words didn’t make any sense. It took two officers to get control of her while she screamed and thrashed. They placed her wrists in handcuffs, and her thighs and ankles in two separated sets of leg restraints. lastly, they placed a blanket over her until EMTs arrived.

    The woman was hospitalized for treatment of a possible drug overdose. At the hospital, Valancia said she remembered the officer, who noted in his report that “Valencia’s behavior was the complete opposite as it was during the original call. She was calm polite and cooperative.”

    Valencia was arrested and charged with misdemeanor public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.

    Well it is nice to read a news report where the police put her in the car and gave her a blanket instead of shooting her with a taser or pumping her body full of holes because they 'feared for their lives'.

    Who knows what she was thinking going out in public if she was getting so intoxicated, but at least it seems that the police were decent enough (i.e. did not kick her ass)
    I can only imagine that being confronted by the law while 'tripping balls' is not a great experience.

    I also like the author's "state the facts" approach.. There are no embellished facts about the drug at all, and he even goes the extra mile to note her recovery and trrows in a positive comment from the cop.

    This is exactly why I never dropped acid lol, I feel that would be me. I can't handle the hallucinations (or at least I think I can't haha since never tried). But it is nice that the police seemed to be compassionate towards her with the blanket and such. Can't imagine being in that situation and seeing cops.
