According to Lawrence County Sheriff’s deputies, on Sunday afternoon, September 9, they responded to a 911 call by a woman in the north Route 3 area between Louisa and Fallsburg area. They stated that the woman, whom the officers did not identify, reported that a man she did not know, who was later identified as Nathaniel M. Pack, 34, of Louisa, came on her property asking, “If she was right with God”. Pack then stated to the woman that “he was going to set her free.”
Deputies said the woman told them that Nathaniel Pack had gone toward state Highway 1185.
The deputies reported that when they found Pack, he was overly animated and was talking in gibberish and in random sentences. They said he was under the heavy state of influence of some unknown nature .
The officers said when they took Pack to Three Rivers Medical Center for treatment he headbutted part of the cruiser, causing the speaker to short out.
The responding deputy also said Pack hit him while he was trying to get him out of the vehicle at the hospital.
