• Man Tries Avoiding Pain, Ends Up Causing Much More!

    MURRIETTA (CNS) – A man undergoing detoxification from pain medication
    intentionally drove his car head-on into another car today, stabbed the other
    driver, then stabbed himself in the neck with a cordless drill, authorities
    Deputies went to the 32200 block of Safflower Street in unincorporated
    French Valley at 11:55 a.m. in response to a report of a traffic collision that
    caused injuries, said Riverside sheriff’s Sgt. Jon Wade.
    Homeowners were attempting to detain Garrie Apengren, Jr., 38, of
    Menifee, who was bleeding from the neck as a result of the drill wounds, Wade
    said. Apengren was taken into custody, then taken to a local hospital.
    The deputies learned Apengren was going through detoxification from pain
    medication and had not slept in three or four days, Wade said.
    As a result, he began hallucinating and intentionally drove his car head-
    on into another car, injuring its two occupants, Wade said. Apengren also
    stabbed the driver with an unknown object and attempted to stab the passenger,
    he said.
    Apengren was placed on a mental evaluation hold and was expected to be
    booked at the Southwest Detention Center on four counts of assault with a
    deadly weapon, Wade said.
