A Cairo, Ritchie County man was arrested after police said that he used drugs and was acting frantic while caring for his young son.

According to the criminal complaint, 29-year-old Codi Norman called 911 to report a breaking and entering at his home in Cairo.

Police said that when Norman came to the door he was "covered in sweat, frantic, antsy, disturbed". He was also said to be holding a bow and arrow.

Norman allegedly told investigators that a bald man in a red t-shirt and white coat, who called himself the "commander of death" was in his house and forced him to take drugs.

After asking investigators to check the house with him, they found drug paraphernalia and an illegal substance on a spoon on a bed.

Investigators also saw illegal drugs on the coffee table and on the floor of the living room/play area. They also found children's cold and cough medicine spilling onto the floor.

Norman allegedly told investigators that he smoked methamphetamine six hours earlier, but said that he didn't smoke it in front of his son, who was in the home near the drugs and paraphernalia.

Norman is facing charges of child neglect creating risk of injury
