He told a local news station, “I’ve had a problem with drugs in the past. I still like to do ecstasy once in a while. I accidentally got methamphetamine instead and it really made me crazy.”
Patrick remembered falling asleep at his sister’s house, but then woke up naked in his truck, which was parked Walmart’s parking lot. He didn’t know why he decided to proceed into the store, but he was later discovered naked in the electronics section.
“I got some weird looks, obviously” he said. He wasn’t aware he was naked until he was inside the store.
When police arrived, they made him wear a pair of shorts they found in his truck before bringing him out. “It’s really fuzzy to me, but that stuff made me so paranoid, I thought I was being arrested anyway,” said Patrick.
He told a news reporter, “I’m really depressed. It’s all over the news. I’m going to have to move because of this.”
This is an unfortunate and humiliating event caused by drug use. If you think you have a problem with drugs or alcohol, finding a reputable addiction treatment center is a good idea. Substance abuse can take many things away from us including our dignity, freedom, peace, and lives. Don’t let addiction stand in the way of a joyful life.
