HAWKINS COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Hawkins County Sheriff's Office says it arrested a man who called himself "Don Juan" and impersonated a chicken while wandering outside a home Monday afternoon.
The incident report says a deputy responded to a home on Fields Gap Road and found Daniel Peoples, 48, Church Hill, acting like a chicken and roaming around the property.
Peoples told the deputy there were imaginary people in the yard and the shrubbery around the house, and that by acting like a chicken he could scare them away.
Peoples said he had been using bath salts throughout the day and said he knew his actions were a result of that substance.
He was taken to a local emergency room before being booked into the Hawkins County Jail for public intoxication.
