‘Delusional’ Alaska man restrained with crab pot line

The Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — Halibut Cove residents bound a man with a crab pot line during what Alaska State Troopers described as “a drug induced paranoid-delusional psychotic breakdown” in the artist community near Homer.

The Anchorage Daily News reports the 32-year-old man from Anchor Point took off from Halibut Cove in a skiff and either jumped or fell into the water late Monday afternoon. Onlookers pulled him out of the water.

But the man acted so violently, they told troopers they bound the man’s hands and feet with the crab pot line and restrained him until troopers arrived.

Troopers say the unidentified man later acknowledged taking methamphetamine and possibly bath salts. He was taken to a nearby hospital.
