Police say Pulley had a very dry mouth with white saliva surrounding the corners of his mouth.

Police say he was also displaying extreme paranoia of citizens in the area, sweating profusely in approximately 60-degree weather, and had uncontrollable body movements.

Pulley was arrested and booked into the Laramie County Detention Center on charges of public intoxication, a misdemeanor, and aggravated assault and battery - threatens to use a drawn deadly weapon, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
