A man in California went on a drug-fueled rampage that left eight people injured and a vehicle lodged in a rental home, reports say.
Sonoma County Sheriff's Office identified the suspect as Betai Koffi, 32, and charged him with two counts of attempted murder, three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and one count of carjacking.
According to the detectives' written statement, "Koffi was with five longtime friends who had rented a Bodega Bay home for the Independence Day holiday. They arrived at the home in the 600 blocks of Swan Drive on Wednesday, July 3rd."
"On July 4th at about noon Koffi consumed 2 doses of a drug commonly referred to as LSD or acid, a known dangerous hallucinogenic drug. At approximately 3:00 PM Koffi became delusional around the home while his friends tried to keep him calm. Between 4:00 and 5:00 PM, he took two more doses of LSD. Shortly before 8:00 PM Koffi wanted to leave but his friends tried to stop him," Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office wrote.
"Koffi punched a woman in the chest and side, then stabbed a man with a pencil, choked another man, and punched yet another man in the face. Koffi was able to get outside the home and got into his rental car, a blue Hyundai sedan, and tried to back out of the driveway, only to hit another car that was parked behind him. Koffi put the car in drive and drove towards one of the men, who was able to get out of the way, then drove the car into the garage of the home, lodging it into the home."
Police officials shot Koffi during the incident, and Koffi is currently detained in the hospital where he is undergoing treatment. His bail has not been set.
