Dinosaur Chases Man

NOVEMBER 2--Meet Edward A. Kirk III.

The 19-year-old suspected drug dealer was tripping so hard on LSD yesterday morning that he:

a) thought his Indiana home was filled with aliens;

b) believed dinosaurs were chasing him;

c) invited cops into his apartment to peruse his substantial "stash";

d) told officers getting high was great and the whole world should "trip";

e) "continued to talk and ramble on about distributing LSD for money";

f) explained that selling acid was doing "the people’s work."

Pictured in the above mug shot, Kirk was arrested by Greenwood Police Department officers who responded to his home following a report that a man was running through a nearby parking lot babbling bout aliens and dinosaurs, according to a police affidavit.

When questioned by cops, Kirk said he was "under the influence of LSD and had taken thirty (30) hits of acid." He added, "without prompting," that he had "thousands of hits of acid in a box on the floor."

A subsequent police search turned up a wide assortment of narcotics and drug paraphernalia in Kirk's apartment (where a friend of his overdosed in August).

Kirk was charged with several felony and misdemeanor charges, including narcotics possession, disorderly conduct, and reckless possession of drug paraphernalia. (3 pages)
