Here’s a tip: If your high on PCP, don’t call police and ask for a ride. They’ll give you one.

A Louisiana man who was smoking marijuana laced with PCP apparently wanted to take a ride so he called his local sheriff’s office, authorities said.

Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff’s officials said Charles Ray Stevens, 32, was arrested Saturday on criminal mischief charges.

A sheriff’s office press release said someone called the 911 emergency center four times and would not answer any questions. Instead, the male caller made short comments and said he “wanted to take a ride.”

Deputies went to the caller’s house and spoke with a woman who said her fiance had been smoking marijuana laced with PCP. She said he was hallucinating.

Deputies then arrested Stevens and took him for a ride to the parish jail. It’s unclear whether he had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
