SIX MILE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Deputies said a 15 year old was drunk and high on K-2, a form of synthetic marijuana, when he ripped apart a home in Six Mile while the owner was inside.
Pickens County deputies said the teen broke windows, doors and left a trail of blood along the way Tuesday afternoon on Mt. Olivet Road.
The homeowner, Judith Selig, said she was watching TV when she heard a loud crash, breaking her window. The crashing continued as the unknown 15-year-old made his way through her house, yelling that he had a shotgun and an AK-47, she said.
He tore apart doors and window frames and trashed the kitchen and bathroom, Selig said. She later found a knife he dropped in the front hallway.
"It was still broad daylight out," Selig said. "The first thing I heard was the big loud crash where that first window got broken cause that's the room I was sitting in... scared the bahoozies outta me!"
Deputies arrived to hear the teen yelling and found him coming from the side of the house. The incident report said they "ordered him to the ground" with a Taser, and he was cuffed.
Deputies said the boy's mother was called to the scene and she told them her son had skipped school. She said she had been looking for him since he had called her earlier, sounding intoxicated.
Pickens County deputies said the teenager was taken to Easley Baptist for his injuries, was charged as a juvenile for burglary and released to his parents that night.
