Since whatever happened, happened in Lowell, there is the largest amount of detail:
The reported details are sufficiently weird that I am personally concerned as to the possibility of stroke or a drug interaction [such as can occur between, say, prescription prednisone and certain decongestants]. One of my family members suffered a psychotic episode from the combination of prescribed prednisone and a decongestant, for example. Yes, we had to call the police but as it turns out, what was going on was a dangerous medical event that looked like criminal behavior. Prompt medical care was life saving.
There are also increasing reports of bizarre and uncharacteristic behavior from the use of tamiflu:
Anyway, I hope Senator Marzilli gets not just a lock up but medical care. What was reported here makes no sense to me.
In my legal work with at risk adolescents, medical issues are often missed due to a rush to judgment and psychiatric labels. One kid was very aggressive, out of control and it turned out his adenoids had grown into his airway and he was suffering from severe sleep apnea and deprivation – after the airway was surgically repaired the behavior was eliminated.
The idea of a mature person who is well known giving a fake name and trying to dash away is bizarre, frankly. I suspect a medical cause or component, whether it is drug toxicity, drug interaction, or an idiosyncratic reaction. Certainly, I won’t rush to judgment – nor crow over someone else’s distress.
