Three Sneads, Florida methamphetamine users, called the police claiming that they were being held hostage, the Dothan Eagle reports. The meth users hallucinated that they were being attacked, so they armed themselves with a 12-gauge shotgun and a .22 rifle. Approximately 40 rounds of 12-gauge and an unknown number of .22 rounds were fired from inside the residence, according to authorities.




The trio blew out windows in the home, and shot bullets into the walls of the totally innocent house.  The meth heads completely removed a large rear window from the house on the second floor and even threw the bathroom sink at the imaginary attackers.

Police say that chunks of sheetrock, wood, firearm parts and anything they could tear out of the residence was thrown outside, including the toilet, which was ripped from the floor. In total, more than $10,000 damage was done to the residence.

While newspaper carrier Jennie Stricker was delivering papers on her route during  the pre-dawn hours Sunday, she heard a commotion coming from the house.

According to the Eagle, three people were yelling for help and banging wood on an upper-story window sill in order to get her attention. The three people holed up inside told her they had been shot at and held hostage for several hours.

Stricker then called 911 and law enforcement officers and emergency medical teams were dispatched to the scene.

Jackson County Sheriff’s officers arrived on the scene and found the people inside who initially refused to come out, saying they feared their attackers might still be in the bottom floor of the house.

The officers had to convince the two men and a woman that they were with law enforcement.

Officials said they fired several shots from inside the house,, trying to defend themselves against imagined intruders.

The three people were identified as 30-year-old Matthew Tyler McDaniel of Sneads, Florida, Damian Joseph Hines, 21, also of Sneads, Florida, and 18-year-old Madison Star Douglas, of Marianna, Florida.

They were charged with possession of methamphetamines, attempting to manufacture methamphetamine, felony criminal mischief and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police found a meth lab, some finished meth, and several spent rounds of ammunition inside the home.

Outside the home, officers found a toilet which had been ripped from the floor and thrown to the ground in an attempt to drop it on an attacker that didn’t exist.

The three told the police they had been attacked by several people but they could not provide a description of their attackers.

The woman told police that  she had been stabbed and that the knife broke off in her abdomen.

Upon inspection, officers discovered that she only had a superficial scratch on her abdomen. Her wound and other injuries noted on the three people were self-inflicted while attempting to fight off imagined attackers, authorities concluded.

      Cops coulda learned from Jesse Pinkman that to get tweakers out of the house, all you gotta do is start digging a hole in the front yard.

      They can’t resist a good hole-diggin’.

    I didn’t think it was possible to give meth heads a bad name, guess I was wrong.

    As someone who NEVER missed my beloved show,”Intervention”, I can tell you that one thing I learned is that 93.7% of meth addicts who attempt rehab fail. The shit is beyond insidious.

      Have to lock up any cookers, these people teach others how to cook the stuff and is a never ending cycle , need to reopen Alcatraz for just for them

      • raincheck August 31st, 2014 at 10:20 am

        Have to agree with you there, the “Cooks” should be locked up, along with the people that distribute the stuff as well. I would still like to see the “end user” get some REAL help,getting clean and help train them for decent paying jobs with a future… the cost to Society would be much cheaper than locking them up, and having them drift through the Legal System.. THAT whole thing is sad… especially for any children that are affected by it… Have to break the cycle

        • jo August 31st, 2014 at 10:37 am

          I have read stories where children have witnessed parent up for days picking wall paper off walls, tearing the home to shreds, so sad, who would try this stuff?

          • raincheck August 31st, 2014 at 11:50 am

            It’s heart-wrenching!
