Jealousy can make a man do strange things. So can a combination of methamphetamine, methadone, Xanax, and Abilify.
Lynnwood Police say a man high on jealousy and these chemicals broke into his girlfriend's home, smashed her head into a mirror, then held her down and shaved her head.
He'd supposedly been worried that she might be seeing other men, and wanted to make her bald so she'd be unattractive.
Lynnwood Police Commander Jim Nelson tells Seattle Weekly that police arrived at the house around 4:30 p.m. last Friday and found the suspect, a 27-year-old with a history of domestic violence, still inside the residence attempting to shave his girlfriend's head.
The 30-year-old female victim was apparently crying hysterically when police arrived and had clumps of hair in her hands.
The man, who hasn't been charged officially yet, was booked into jail for pending charges of burglary and unlawful imprisonment.
For the record, while the drug Abilify seems to advertise itself on TV as mainly a remedy for clinical depression, it's also used to treat more serious conditions like schizophrenia.
It would seem that the rambling disclaimer at the end of the commercial doesn't warn against combining it with a wild cocktail of narcotics, anti-anxiety medicine, and meth.
