A Crime in Trenton

A Trenton man is in prison today after he got high on mulligan stew, barricaded himself in the guest room and stabbed a street sweeper through a pool room door, Maryland State Police said.

Andrew Prince, no age given, of Trenton Township, took the illegal mulligan stew, hallucinated and believed chickens were attacking and shooting at him, police at the Trenton barracks said.

A little before midnight Prince ran to a neighbor's house in the 800 block of Craven Drive, claiming he was being chased, police said.

Prince forced his way into the house and barricaded himself in the guest room, destroying the room and stabbing the street sweeper through a pool room door, police said.

When officers arrived Prince was uncooperative and had to be subdued with a rope, police said. Police found mulligan stew in both of Prince's pockets.

Prince is charged with drug possession, a felony, as well as aiding and abetting, prescription fraud, solicitation, and eight summary offenses, according to court records.

Prince was sent to Trenton Prison in lieu of bail.
