WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A man is in jail after witnesses and police say he "flipped out," abandoned his young sister and allegedly attacked a Wilmington Police officer.

Wilmington Police say they were called to 1525 S 11th St. Monday, where witnesses told police Timothy Tyre Miller, 20, had "flipped out" and began destroying property before leaving the home and leaving his seven-year-old sister behind.

Officers walked the girl to her home a few doors down the street. When they got there, they say an irate Miller walked out of the house and began yelling and cursing at the officer. Miller then tried to physically confront the officer, who was forced to deploy his Electronic Control Device to subdue him.

Police arrested Miller and took him to the hospital, where they found he had taken PCP and marijuana, also known as "Love Boat." Investigators say Miller also had crack cocaine on him when he was arrested.

Miller is in the New Hanover County Jail under $10,000 bond on charges of assault on a law enforcement officer and possession of schedule II.

Think

Every person in the news, in reference to smoking something or shooting someone or committing violent crimes, this is not there first time. When you people have enough, lets start holding Judges, DAs and politicians responible for repeat offenders. Throw them in jail with them.

At least he looks pleased

At least he looks pleased with his new accomodations.

No cure!

There is just no cure for stupid.

Could be somebody laced the marajuana without him knowing

As a healthcare worker Ive seen it happen or did when I worked EMS. Guys lighting up what they thought was just some herb but turned out either their dealer or somebody in the distribution line had laced it with PCP.. Sad but true you cant always trust your friendly neighborhood maryjane dealer folks. Had a call even weirder one time. Girl had popped 32 unisom which is like 1600 mg of benedryl and yes can easily be fatal (benedryl in high enough doses shuts down the parasympathetic nervous system and as such can cause hypertensive crisis, extreme tachycardia and death by stroke or heart attack) turned out the girl had PCP in her system started to flip out and thought the unisom/benedryl would counteract the PCP but the high doses did nearly the opposite and nearly killed her at age 15.

attacked cop

What in heavens name would make someone want to smoke something that will fry your brain.Before all the craziness start.There are alot of people that smoke weed now and in the past,so you can come down of your high horse.This is more to the people that smoke it,WHY and you know what it is soon as you light it?Just crazy as all outdoors!!!!!!

i dont do pcp, or crack, or

i dont do pcp, or crack, or heroin. i dont even drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes. however, i do smoke marijuana every now and then. in october 2009, i was in a very high speed, almost fatal headon collision with a drunk driver. ive got bone and nerve injuries that will be with me for the rest of my life, not to mention, tramatic stress disorder. yes, there are many pain medicines out there, but those pain meds have very adverse side effects that make it not worth taking. ive taken just about everything out there for pain,even having morphine treatments throughout the days. my body got so immune to the narcotic effect, that i had to take enough to kill a elephant, just to get a few hours of relief. it was killing my body, and my mind, and being a 25 year old father and husband, i couldnt do it anymore. pain medicine kills thousands of people a year. its just so easy to overdose when your just trying to get relief. anyways, my point is, i smoke pot every now and then to ease off the severe pain that i got through every single day i open my eyes. it really helps, its like flicking a light switch. one minute i cant walk, smoke a little bit, and im able to cut the grass. i dont smoke to get "stoned", i just hit it a few times till the pain eases off. im totally against other drugs, but everyone needs to relax and understand the whole "marijauana" issue before assuming its like the others. think about it and do some research. in the history of our planet, how many people have died from marijauna?

Talk about strung out.......

Good lord - Angel Dust, Pot, and Crack? Space Basing is what this cat was doing.....lethal combination. Fortunately for everyone involved it didn't come to that.

There is a cure for that.......

It is a 9mm to the head.
