Vehicle prowler arrested while allegedly under influence of PCP | Crime
UPDATED - 10:05 A.M. - A Spokane Valley man had a hallucinogenic ride to Spokane County Jail early Monday morning after he was picked up by a deputy for vehicle prowling and possession of phencyclidine.
Eric Faux, 25, was reportedly peeking into a complainant’s vehicle and tried to enter a home near the 12200 block of East 1st Ave. at around 6:30 a.m. When Deputy Kiehn arrived to the scene, Faux was standing under the complainant’s carport and merely shrugged and laughed when questioned by the deputy.
Since Faux matched the complainant’s description, he was handcuffed while Deputy Kiehn spoke to the homeowner. When Faux was escorted to the patrol vehicle, he attempted to pull away, prompting the arrest for obstruction. When Faux’s person was searched, Deputy Kiehn found a clear plastic baggie containing blotter paper used for drugs.
Results came back negative for LSD during a field drug test, but results came back positive though for PCP, another hallucinogenic compound.
While Deputy Kiehn transported Faux to Spokane County Jail, Faux reportedly yelled at passing cars, growled, had a conversation with himself and began sweating profusely. A jail nurse was advised of Faux’s condition.
Faux was book for obstructing a law enforcement officer, 2nd degree vehicle prowling and possession of a controlled substance.
When we first published this story, we stated the man's name was Michael Faux, 55, but the Spokane County Sheriff's Office issued a correction this morning saying there was a discrepancy between the name on the report and the charging document.
