Naked and Weird

Joseph Vaglica, 40, of Edgewater, Florida, surprised a woman at her New Smyrna Beach home on Nov. 7 when, naked, he burst in through the garage door and ran through her kitchen "acting irrationally." The homeowner dashed next door to her stepson's house and called 911, reported the Daytona Beach News-Journal. Meanwhile, Vaglica helped himself to some of the woman's clothes, then ran outside and started banging on the windows at the stepson's home. When New Smyrna Beach police officers arrived, Vaglica was rolling around in the grass. Police said he was intoxicated; he was later charged with burglary with assault.

Sullivan, Missouri, police department Lt. Patrick Johnson joined the town's residents in witnessing a barrage of weird behavior on Nov. 3 and 4. Johnson thinks the people who were "barking like dogs or other farm animals, running up and down the street, entering people's homes, breaking into a business" were high on flakka, a synthetic drug, mixed with methamphetamine, although the substances have not yet been tested. Some of the people broke into a nightclub, stripped down to their birthday suits and showered in fountain water or soda, according to the Sullivan Independent News. Two people were arrested, and others were treated at a hospital. [Sullivan Independent News, 11/7/2017]
