Police arrived at a residence on July 3 after Hammond’s mother called to report that her some was “walking around out of his mind, armed with a knife.” When the officer pulled up to the house, Hammond reportedly sprinted towards the car with a knife.

As the officer pulled away, Hammond, 21, ran after him and started banging windows and pulling on the locked doors. The officer pulled his gun and ordered him to drop his knife. Hammond complied but challenged the officer to a fight. He eventually got on the ground and the officer arrested him.

The Journal-Constitution has more:

Hammond continued to act bizarrely once in custody. He spoke in fragmented sentences about random subjects, repeatedly quoting a hot sauce commercial phrase, “I put that [expletive] on everything.” He also appeared to be hallucinating and spoke to imaginary people.

Meanwhile, the officer smelled a “strong odor of excrement emitting from his breath” and said he appeared to have “feces in his mouth and on his teeth,” according to the report.

The officer took Hammond to the Gwinnett County Jail, where medical staff determined he needed medical treatment. Hammond, who was yelling and kicking windows, had to be restrained during the ride to the Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville.

Eventually, Hammond reportedly told officers that he “smoked marijuana, drank alcohol and snorted “a lot” of bath salts.” After being released from the hospital, Hammond was taken to jail and charged with felony obstruction and disorderly conduct.

He is being held without bond.
