A 33-year-old city man who overdosed on a Valium prescription not meant for him acted so strangely that he endangered his 7-month-old baby and injured his girlfriend, according to Middletown Police.
On Dec. 19 at 7:03 p.m., police were called to a home on Saybrook Road in which a woman, holding a 7-month-old baby with spilled liquid on its clothes, said she found her boyfriend of three years, Thomas Dillon, 33, of Saybrook Road, who looked confused to officers, unconscious on the bed, the report says.
He looked like he was in distress, police say, awoke and started spouting nonsense like, “there are cereal puff people everywhere,” and “my pop’s a potato.” Then, the woman said, Dillon told her he wanted to take the baby to grandmother’s house, but she had been dead a long time, the report indicates.
He then became enraged, shoved her while she had the baby, picked up a plastic bottle of apple juice and hit her over the head with it three to six times, the report says. Dillon looked confused, police say, and had a bag with crushed blue pills in it, Valium prescribed to the victim.
