HAWKINS COUNTY, TN (WJHL) -

A man calling himself “Don Juan” and impersonating a chicken was found wandering outside a stranger’s home in Hawkins County Monday afternoon.

A Hawkins County sheriff’s deputy was called to a home on Fields Gap Road around 5 p.m. Monday and found a man later identified as Daniel Peoples, 48, Church Hill, acting like a chicken and roaming around the property, according to an incident report.

Peoples told the deputy there were imaginary people in the yard and the shrubbery around the house, and that by acting like a chicken he could scare them away.

The deputy said Peoples kept referring to himself as Don Juan and believed he was in Lexington, Ky. He asked the deputy to take him to Hawkins County.

The homeonwner whose yard he was in did not know Peoples, nor did Peoples know him. 

Peoples said he had been using bath salts throughout the day and said he knew his actions were a result of that substance.

He was taken to a local emergency room before being booked into the Hawkins County Jail for public intoxication.
