A couple high on bath salts invaded a pastors home in a paranoid attempt to seek safety from gang members who they thought were after them.
According to WSOCTV News, police said Donna and Phillip Walls were high on the synthetic drug known as bath salts yesterday, creating the delusion that gang members were after them. In a 911 call, Donna Walls stated in a panic to police, “There are people under our house . . . They were there yesterday and last night.”
The couple then proceeded to come out of their house with a military bag full of weapons according to several eye witness accounts. The Walls’ neighbor, Debra Robinson, saw the whole incident play out and told reporters, “They were delusional. They really thought somebody was out to kill them.”
Several gun shots went into the air from the couple. Neighbors feared for their children during the incident as the gun shots were fired out in the open where children were present. After the shots were fired, the couple ran into pastor Richard Robinson’s home.
According to the pastor, “They knocked in the glass door. I knew if they ran to me they needed help. I was little afraid, don’t get me wrong, but even in that state of mind , He had enough presence to ask me to pray for him.” While the police forced there way inside the home to take control of the situation, the pastor communicated with the couple, trying to calm them down. He told the couple, “‘You are in my house. You know you are safe. Ain’t nobody gonna hurt you. Just give me the guns.”
The couple eventually handed over the guns to Robinson. According to police reports, the couple has had a history of using bath salts, however, this is the first incident where using the drugs has made the couple a danger to others.
