During the arrest, officers say Lochinvar Caldwell was naked, sweating and combative. He also had schizophrenic-like symptoms, such as flattened affect, dissociative thoughts, depersonalization and catatonic states. Police say these are signs they associate with someone possibly under the influence of Phencyclidine, also known as PCP.

Officers obtained a search warrant for the house, and found multiple bottles containing prescription pills, two bottles and a clear plastic bag containing a green leafy substance, drug paraphernalia, and a gun.

Authorities have issued a drug test for Lochinvar Caldwell.
