has anyone ever ended up in jail because of manic behavior?

Re: jail?

I have not, but to be honest, I'm surprised I didn't when I was a teenager. I would have if caught doing what I was doing, but I never got caught. Has this happened to you?

Re: jail?

I stay depressed not manic, so no jail for me, unless you consider the psych ward....that was pretty much like jail, I had my own personal babysitter 24/7.

Re: jail?

I was never in jail, but I had an assault charge brought upon me.

Re: jail?

They would probably send someone to the state hospital to do their time once they had been stabilized. That is what I saw a lot of anyway.

Re: jail?

Yeah, done jail for mental illness before. That judge was a real nut. He was eventually found out to be a pedo, as it turned out. No wonder he gave me hell, i was only about 18 or something.

Also, had a few times, got lucky when the cops just wanna get you back to the cells cause they wanna get you in private and stuff. But i am lucky, i been able to get carted to the psych ward. But hell, so manic and crazy, like just giving it to the cops or something, i'm not sure i remember much. One time i know i was giving this really fat one hell, and he was like so mean, and i got chucked around and in the back of the paddy wagon, like driving hell and stuff, but i'm still like whatever and giving him hell too. But other times, not sure.

nasty business, all of it.

Re: jail?

It's not me, but my brother. He went off Meds and did a bunch of bad things when he was manic. He's been there for almost 2 months. Since he is a danger to himself and others I'm glad he's somewhere that he can be monitored. I was just wondering if his was an extreme case or if others had been there and could offer advice. Thanks for the replies.
