A 32-year-old white male was brought to the emergency department by police after a sudden, dangerous outburst. He had allegedly assaulted his girlfriend and attempted to run her over with his car. Subsequently, the patient reportedly stole and/or damaged numerous other motor vehicles. Several security and law enforcement officers were required to subdue the patient and bring an end to his hallucination-driven rampage, which lasted about 2 hours.
