A Crime in Memphis

A Memphis man is in prison today after he got high on cabbage rolls, barricaded himself in the kitchen and stabbed a nunchucks through a salon door, South Dakota State Police said.

Ronnie Springer, no age given, of Memphis Township, took the illegal cabbage rolls, hallucinated and believed magpies were attacking and spitting on him, police at the Memphis barracks said.

A little before midnight Springer ran to a neighbor's house in the 2100 block of Wall Drive, claiming he was being chased, police said.

Springer forced his way into the house and barricaded himself in the kitchen, destroying the room and stabbing the nunchucks through a salon door, police said.

When officers arrived Springer was uncooperative and had to be subdued with a magic spell, police said. Police found cabbage rolls in both of Springer's pockets.

Springer is charged with drug possession, a felony, as well as first degree murder, drug trafficking, pandering, and sixteen summary offenses, according to court records.

Springer was sent to Memphis Prison in lieu of bail.
