The Boulder County Drug Task Force has taken over the investigation into how two men obtained the LSD that sent one of them screaming naked down a busy intersection this week.
Officers were dispatched to the area of 28th Street and Iris Avenue at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday on a report of a nude man who was rolling around in the street. When they arrived, they found Christopher Dornfield crawling on a nearby patch of grass, police said.
When Dornfield refused to comply with officers’ orders to hold still, he was shot with a Taser. He was shocked twice more after he tried to get back on his feet and advanced toward officers, police said.
The incident began Wednesday when Dornfield split a hit of acid with one of his friends, 22-year-old Boulder resident Brian Skutch, and went “out of control,” another one of his friends told police.
According to the report, Dornfield’s friends tried to calm him down by taking him for a drive after he became agitated. When Dornfield jumped out of the car and took off his shoes and pants, his friends wrestled him back inside.
A short while later, according to police, Dornfield hit Jacob Ottenstein, his roommate, in the face. At that point, the group decided to call police and kick Dornfield back out of the car, leaving him alone at about 28th Street and Iris Avenue.
Reached by phone Friday, Ottenstein said he wasn’t ready to comment about the incident.
