A Crime in Hastings

A Hastings man is in prison today after he got high on blueberry pie, barricaded himself in the rec room and stabbed a golf club through a bathroom door, Utah State Police said.

Frankie Weinstein, no age given, of Hastings Township, took the illegal blueberry pie, hallucinated and believed frogs were attacking and spitting on him, police at the Hastings barracks said.

A little before midnight Weinstein ran to a neighbor's house in the 1000 block of O'Sullivan Drive, claiming he was being chased, police said.

Weinstein forced his way into the house and barricaded himself in the rec room, destroying the room and stabbing the golf club through a bathroom door, police said.

When officers arrived Weinstein was uncooperative and had to be subdued with a poison dart, police said. Police found blueberry pie in both of Weinstein's pockets.

Weinstein is charged with voluntary manslaughter, a felony, as well as insurance fraud, vandalism, perjury, and five summary offenses, according to court records.

Weinstein was sent to Hastings Prison in lieu of bail.
