3 Hostages Actually Just Hallucinating On Meth: Cops

Posted: Updated:

Yes, this happened in Florida.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office responded last Sunday after reports that three people were screaming out of a home, claiming to have been taken hostage.

WMBB reports that authorities arrived at the residence and were told that the three supposed victims -- 18-year-old Madison Douglas, 21-year-old Damian Hines, and 30-year-old Matthew McDaniel -- had been taken hostage for several hours. They were also told the supposed hostages were shot at in the home.

Police soon discovered that the group had in fact hallucinated while on meth. Douglas said she had been stabbed by a suspect, but authorities said she had only a light scratch on her abdomen that was self-inflicted.

More from WMBB:

Numerous windows were shot out and holes were shot in the walls. They completely removed a large rear window from the house on the second floor and threw the bathroom sink at the imaginary attackers. Chunks of sheetrock, wood, firearm parts, and anything they could tear out of the residence was thrown outside including the toilet, which was ripped from the floor. In total, more than $10,000 damage was done to the residence.
