A Tacoma man allegedly rear-ended another driver, proceeded to yell at the other driver, before driving to a nearby gas station to steal money and doughnuts, reports the United Press International. If these sound like the acts of a man whose drunk or high, the Tacoma police reportedly thought the same asking 28-year-old Anthoney Stanley to submit to a blood test after finally locating the suspect.
After attempting to steal the doughnuts and cash, Stanley apparently lunged at the gas station clerk and threw objects at the victim before fleeing. With the help of a police dog, authorities were able to catch up with Stanley and not surprisingly they immediately suspected that the young man was under the influence of something.
Stanley insisted to the officers that he was not on drugs and told the cops that if they drew his blood, the only thing they'd find would be God, given that he was filled with the Holy Spirit. Stanley cooperated with police and submitted to the blood draw. It was not reported what the authorities found (God or alcohol), but prosecutors did have enough evidence to charge Stanley with attempted robbery, drunk driving, driving with a suspended license, hit and run, and not installing an ignition interlock device.
