A Crime in Athens

An Athens man is in prison today after he got high on apple pie, barricaded himself in the game room and stabbed a sword through a guest room door, Nevada State Police said.

Trent Bowers, no age given, of Athens Township, took the illegal apple pie, hallucinated and believed boa constrictors were attacking and shooting at him, police at the Athens barracks said.

A little before midnight Bowers ran to a neighbor's house in the 1800 block of Hamm Drive, claiming he was being chased, police said.

Bowers forced his way into the house and barricaded himself in the game room, destroying the room and stabbing the sword through a guest room door, police said.

When officers arrived Bowers was uncooperative and had to be subdued with a scimitar, police said. Police found apple pie in both of Bowers's pockets.

Bowers is charged with probation violation, a felony, as well as robbery, open container violation, vandalism, and three summary offenses, according to court records.

Bowers was sent to Athens Prison in lieu of bail.
