Man calls 911, then attacks his responders



A drug-crazed man who called 911 for help ended up attacking a Madison County sheriff's deputy and firefighter who came to his aid. Both were sent to a hospital.

Andrew S. Herrin, 22, of Godfrey, also ended up facing a variety of criminal charges.

Herrin called 911 about 8:30 p.m. Thursday and asked that an ambulance be sent to his location, the home of an acquaintance on Little Creek Lane in Godfrey. Herrin told the dispatcher he had been drinking beer and using drugs, that his heart was racing and that he needed medical help.

"Out of his own mouth, he indicated that he had taken LSD," sheriff's Lt. Brad Wells said. "Our telecommunicator sent the fire department, an ambulance and also a deputy. The telecommunicator recognized the guy was acting irrationally on the telephone."

When help arrived, Herrin began screaming profanities, throwing punches and kicking.

Sheriff's Sgt. Ray Burris and Godfrey firefighter Ron Brooks received treatment at a hospital for injuries they suffered during a struggle with Herrin. Burris had a cut on his forehead that needed stitches; Brooks had a hand injury.

Herrin also was taken to a hospital, then later to the Madison County Jail, where he remained Friday afternoon with bail set at $150,000 by Circuit Judge Ann Callis. He was charged with criminal damage to property, obstructing a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Wells said in recent times, drug-induced rages have more commonly been seen with use of methamphetamine. Herrin is about 6-foot-1 and weighs 205 pounds.

Wells said anyone under the influence of a drug "can be a handful to control. That's just part of the nature of the beast that we deal with on a daily basis."
