A Crime in Panama City

A Panama City man is in prison today after he got high on egg rolls, barricaded himself in the den and stabbed a potato masher through a dungeon door, South Carolina State Police said.

Wes Weiss, no age given, of Panama City Township, took the illegal egg rolls, hallucinated and believed cocker spaniels were attacking and shooting at him, police at the Panama City barracks said.

A little before midnight Weiss ran to a neighbor's house in the 1100 block of Higgins Drive, claiming he was being chased, police said.

Weiss forced his way into the house and barricaded himself in the den, destroying the room and stabbing the potato masher through a dungeon door, police said.

When officers arrived Weiss was uncooperative and had to be subdued with a Molotov cocktail, police said. Police found egg rolls in both of Weiss's pockets.

Weiss is charged with robbery, a felony, as well as prostitution, murder, criminal contempt, and nineteen summary offenses, according to court records.

Weiss was sent to Panama City Prison in lieu of bail.
