SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – South Carolina deputies have arrested a couple after they allegedly called 911 five times because they saw possums and people jumping out of the refrigerator and microwave.
Brandon Terry and Casey Fowler have since been charged with unlawful use of 911.
According to an incident report, the responding deputy asked them if they were on any type of narcotic, to which they replied no.
The couple then began to tell the deputy they had pictures of worms coming out of the floor of their vehicle and pictures of other people camouflaged.
The deputy said he looked at several of the pictures, which reportedly just showed a basketball goal and a tree.
The couple said the person was standing beside the tree and they could clearly see the person.
The deputy says when he told the couple there was nothing there, Terry told him it was because only he could see them.
When the deputy made a background check on Terry, he found six felony warrants from Cleveland County, North Carolina, for narcotics charges.
During a field sobriety test, the deputy says Terry stopped and said that he felt the deputy touching his eyes.
The deputy told Terry his six warrants were for pills and cocaine. Terry then said he did experiment with drugs in the past but denied being under the influence of any narcotics.
The report stat’s the deputies training and experience led him to believe both Terry and Fowler were under the influence of a narcotic, possibly “Gravel” aka “Flakka,” both of which lead a person’s actions to be similar to that of bath salts.
The deputy had EMS check the couple out and they said that the couple seemed to be fine mentally and didn’t have a prior history of mental illness.
The deputy then said he spoke to the mother of Fowler who said she was coming to Spartanburg to check on the couple due to her thing they were on drugs.
The mother also told the deputy that neither person had a history of mental illness but had a history of drug use.
