A Crime in San Diego

A San Diego man is in prison today after he got high on succotash, barricaded himself in the den and stabbed a smoke bomb through a workshop door, South Dakota State Police said.

Rob Chen, no age given, of San Diego Township, took the illegal succotash, hallucinated and believed pandas were attacking and shooting at him, police at the San Diego barracks said.

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

Chen forced his way into the house and barricaded himself in the den, destroying the room and stabbing the smoke bomb through a workshop door, police said.

When officers arrived Chen was uncooperative and had to be subdued with a pair of brass knuckles, police said. Police found succotash in both of Chen's pockets.

Chen is charged with being ugly in public, a felony, as well as fashion faux-pas, robbery, bribery, and thirteen summary offenses, according to court records.

Chen was sent to San Diego Prison in lieu of bail.
