A man who stabbed three people while under the influence of LSD has received a three-year prison term.

Adam Scott Presley, 22, stabbed a friend, the friend’s brother and grandmother around midnight in the victims’ Athens home in April, the Athens Banner-Herald reported.

He was arrested soon after when he was found naked and bleeding inside a Walmart.

Officers used Tasers on Presley to try to subdue him and eventually had to gain control of him physically, according to the newspaper.

Presley pleaded guilty Jan. 5 to all 10 counts of an indictment and will be on probation for 10 years after his prison term ends, officials said.
