Collier deputies say a Golden Gate man was hallucinating on drugs when he walked into a convenient store early Friday shirtless, sweaty and with two large knives.

Witnesses said Corey Joe Stump, 34, walked into a Circle K at 1998 Santa Barbara Blvd. around 5 a.m. holding the two knives. Stump asked someone not to eat him and "appeared to be hallucinating," deputies reported.

Stump dropped the knives after deputies told him to do so, reports said. Deputies tried to take him out of the store, but Stump kept flinching and pulling away from imaginary aliens, according to an arrest report.

A friend later told deputies Stump had taken mollys, a pure form of ecstasy, and said he might have mixed it with alcohol. A neighbor said Stump began hallucinating at his home and knocked on a neighbor's window while holding the knives.

Stump was arrested at his home on the 1700 block of 55th Terrace Southwest after he was released from the hospital. He faces misdemeanor charges of disorderly intoxication and improper exhibition of a dangerous weapon.

Molly does not make you do that type of stuff. Was most likely crystal meth.

Why all these dumb & downscale Golden Ghetto stories?

Most people here choose not to leave the island except for extreme medical treatment.

Wouldn't even know how to reach Golden Gate.
