He drove his car across a lawn, through his neighbor’s fence, smashed through a glass sliding door and rescued their dog from an imaginary fire that was raging in his mind.
When police arrived they found him standing in the middle of the road holding a large white dog.
He had banged on doors in the neighborhood, yelling about a fire before taking his heroic rescue action.
He is being charged with second degree burglary and third degree criminal mischief. He will not face any drug charges.
The dog was not injured.
