While in route officers received another call reporting a woman had broken the glass out of a door to a residence and entered the home.

When officers arrived they found 24-year-old Rick Laws, of 412 Lincoln Ave., screaming and yelling.

"He was rolling all over the ground flopping from his front to his back and yelling that meth was melting his legs," Parsley says. "He was out of control. Officers were able to get him in handcuffs, but had to hobble his legs before placing him in the police car for his and the safety of others."

In the meantime, other officers went to the home where the door was busted out.
