A Syracuse man who allegedly had a bad trip on LSD and punched an officer in the chest was arrested Monday.

Joshua M. Monroe, 21, of 518 Turtle Bay Drive, Syracuse, was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail at 4:53 p.m. Monday for battery to a public official, a Level 6 felony, and disorderly conduct, a Class B misdemeanor.

According to the probable cause affidavit filed June 12 in Kosciusko Superior Court III, Syracuse police went to do a welfare check at the residence and upon arrival spoke with Christopher Monroe, who told police he and his brother Joshua Monroe had taken LSD and he did not know where his brother was. Christopher Monroe “advised he killed or harmed his family with LSD,” and allowed police to search the house to look for his brother, court papers state.

Officers heard yelling from a back bedroom and then observed Joshua Monroe jump out of the window, according to the probable cause affidavit. Joshua Monroe then admitted to police he had taken LSD and just woken up. Police told Joshua Monroe “to come down several times and he would not listen to commands.” Joshua Monroe then struck one officer in the chest with a closed fist and charged at the other officer, court papers state. Police had to use a taser to subdue him.

A warrant was issued for Joshua Monroe’s arrest June 13. His bond is set at $8,750. He’s set to appear in court at 1 p.m. today for an initial hearing.
