Man says God told him to go to jail, where he’s arrested for meth
He was on a mission from God.
A Louisiana man who said God told him to visit a local jail to get his family out ended up behind bars on a drug possession charge, authorities said.
Bobby Koch, 35, was arrested just after midnight Saturday at Ouchita Correctional Center where he drove shortly after the alleged divine intervention – and after doing meth, KTVE/KARD was first to report.
A guard at the jail called the Ouachita sheriff’s office on a “harassment” complaint, a charging document shows. A guard at the entrance pointed a sheriff’s deputy to the sole car in the parking lot, where Koch sat.
Koch got out of the car and said “God told him to come here” to get his family out, the deputy wrote in his report. Koch admitted to having used meth before visiting the jail, the report stated.
The accused then agreed to a search for his car, where the deputy found a bag inside a backpack that contained what appeared to be methamphetamine, according to the report.
After being informed he was being charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, Koch was transported inside the jail, the report stated.
