The high coonass concentration at LSU typically makes for festive times down in Baton Rouge most days. Throw in a couple bottles of muscadine wine, a late model Mercedes, and a possibly mentally unstable guy named Storm and you’ve got yourself a party…or an inpromptto lawn sale out on the campus Quad.
Witnesses and police said University student Storm Erie drove a blue Mercedes along the sidewalk around Middleton Library, down the steps at the front entrance and through the Quad, nearly hitting multiple students before parking on a grassy area in the middle of the quad.
“He drove down the steps at the library, honking his horn and almost hitting people,” said Kandice Tyler, psychology junior, who witnessed Erie drive his car into the quad. “I really thought he was going to start shooting or something.”
Erie, accompanied by his dog, began throwing the contents of his vehicle onto the ground in the Quad.
And what “contents” was he tossing out onto the Quad…oh, you know, the usual…
A dirty pair of rubber boots, a half-empty bottle of wine, a large wooden sling blade, a djembe, a four-sided lugwrench, a skateboard, a wooden chess set, a sweater, a pair of shoes, landscaping bags, a flashlight and a small mug littered the ground behind the car. He also propped up a set of blueprints along the back of the running car.
That may seem a little odd, but aparently those blue prints were pretty awesome.
“He was a real scraggily white dude — he was either crazy or on something serious,” said Michael Fernandez, sociology junior. “He walked up to me and said, ‘I just want to shake your hand.’ I asked him what he was doing, and he said, ‘Blueprints, man — come check out these blueprints.’
UPDATE: FOTP has wrangled a picture of the keeper of the blueprints, Mr. Storm Erie…and its pretty much what we all expected he’d look like.
‘Blueprints, man — come check out these blueprints.’
