ARIZONA POLICE PULL MAN OVER FOR DUI, FIND CRYSTAL METH AND LIVE OWL IN CAR
In the wee hours of the morning on Thursday this week, police in Payson, Arizona pulled a car over for suspected DUI. That is pretty standard fare any night of the week, in any town in the United States. As sad as that reality is, oftentimes these traffic stops can be even sadder. Well, and beyond strange, as is the case here. Because when they pulled this particular gentleman over, they immediately saw crystal meth in his car. Oh, and a live owl. Evidently, the man high on methamphetamine had just purchased the live owl from someone at a gas station earlier that night.
CRYSTAL METH LITERALLY TURNS PEOPLE INTO ZOMBIES, WITH NO ABILITY TO DISCERN RIGHT FROM WRONG
So obviously, there was a lot going on for this man who was higher than a hurricane kite that night. Personally, I don’t know what it’s like to be high on crystal meth. But there are so many stories out there of meth-induced foolishness that it’s never really been something I’ve been too curious about. Well, and the endless stream of meth-head mugshots out there. Every one of those folks looks like a zombie, if a zombie that can still have a conversation. And then buy an owl from a stranger for $100 at a gas station in the middle of the night and proceed to drive off. You get the idea. Meth makes people…. Dangerously strange and lacking basic mores.
AFTER ARREST, INJURED OWL, ARIZONA POLICE ISSUE PSA PLEA TO GENERAL PUBLIC NOT TO USE METH
Sadly, the owl in this case was injured at some point in this drama and is now with the Arizona Game and Fish Department. This latest meth head now under arrest will likely have his portrait mug shot appear soon, and we can see for ourselves his degree of conversational zombie visage. But the Payson, Arizona Police Department issued a PSA which normally would be ironic. But because it’s meth, it’s literally a PSA, and a plea:
The Payson Police Department would also like to take this opportunity to encourage the public not to use methamphetamine or you too may find yourself illegally purchasing a wild owl, for $100, in the middle of the night, from strangers, at a local gas station.
