Bad trip: Citizens called 911 to report a man laying down in the intersection of Haight and Stanyan streets at 8:04 p.m. Aug. 26.
Officers arrived and found the subject lying in the middle of the intersection, yelling and screaming incoherently. He started to walk away as police approached. When stopped, he turned and punched an officer in the face. He became so violent that it took four officers several minutes of fighting in order to control him and place him in handcuffs.
The subject reportedly had taken eight hits of LSD, but was soon resting well at county jail.

Dragged by hair: Patrol officers around McAllister and Jones streets on Aug. 25 saw a man dragging a woman down the sidewalk by her hair. The woman said the man was her boyfriend and was dragging her out of her building after she told him she did not want to go.
