Man high on the coco tries to rescue his imaginary girlfriend from a garbage truck


By Gainsville

A 75-year-old man was arrested on aggravated assault and cocaine possession Monday after being accused of threatening a garbage truck operator with a knife and trying to retrieve an imaginary girlfriend.

At about 8:30 a.m., a WCA Waste Corporation truck was making rounds in the Linton Oaks apartment complex when a man armed with a kitchen knife stood in front of the vehicle and ordered its driver to get out. The knife-wielding man, identified by sheriff’s deputies as Walter Welch, also told the driver he believed his girlfriend was in the truck and tried to climb inside the cab, according to a jail booking report.

The driver ignored Welch’s orders and went on his way. Welch returned with a can of pepper spray and emptied its contents into an air intake on the vehicle, the report states.

The driver summoned the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, and deputies went to Welch’s home. There they found what they believed was crack cocaine sitting on a coffee table, along with a bottle that had been modified to smoke the drug, the report states.

The garbage truck required $100 worth of cleaning due to the pepper spray.

Welch was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, property damage, burglary, possession of cocaine and possession of drug equipment. As of Tuesday morning, he remained in the Alachua County jail in lieu of a $55,000 bond.

Alachua County court records show Welch was arrested in March on suspicion of possession of cocaine. He also faced a drug possession charge in 2013, but successfully completed a pretrial intervention program.

  2. Perfect timing! I’m practicing a presentation I’ve giving to a group of young professionals (and my ideal clients) tomorrow. Will practice pausing and talking in clear, clean sentences. Thank you for the reminder![]

  3. Potsherd2 – a concession to reality, to “natural justice” if not to ideal morality. The two often come into conflict. By natural justice, trial by combat on the large scale, being a victor in a cataclysmic world war means that you count. Might made you right.I think you’re correct about UN Security Council, whose establishment and configuration was also a concession to natural justice, or historical necessity, or practical politics. Making it obsolete, in a good way, would be a good thing, would define a great historical task.

    Match historique avec un Federer incroyable et un Nole plus que prometteur (Nadal peut trembler pour la suite!). J’aimerais que Federer gagne cette finale ainsi il bouclera enfin la boucle et démontrera que malgré tout il restera numéro 1 dans l’histoire du tennis. Merci pour ce superbe papier!
