A man, heading to Slidell to see a “voodoo doctor”, rammed through a fence at the Slidell Municipal Airport, then crashed into a utility pole. The man claimed he was running from the police…the only problem was, there were no police chasing him. The story only gets more bizarre after the crash.
Slidell Police received a call around 8:30 a.m. on Monday about a black 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe, which had crashed at the Slidell Municipal Airport. The driver of the vehicle, 43-year-old, Kevin Bolton (Hattiesburg, Mississippi), fled into a nearby patch of woods after the crash. Prior to crashing, several people reported seeing Bolton driving erratically through the Town of Pearl River, and on Interstate 12.
Police later located Bolton in the Belair Subdivision wearing nothing but his underwear. Bolton alleges that he had to strip off his clothes because snakes were crawling up his pants.
Bolton, who authorities believe was under the influence of some type of narcotic, was booked into the Slidell City Jail on charges of careless operation of a motor vehicle and hit and run.
Additional charges may be filed as the investigation is still on going.
