LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Wolfforth man is behind bars after breaking into a neighbor's home, completely naked.

Wolfforth Police say 33-year-old Kelly Farrar was arrested shortly after 2 a.m. Tuesday after forcing his way into the Whitten Family's garage without any clothes on. Victim Jenny Whitten says Farrar was incoherent, screaming profanities, and running back and forth.

Whitten says Farrar got into one of their vehicle and began beating the dash board. Whitten says her husband Jeff finally got Farrar out, but Farrar then forced his way into their home. Whitten and her 16-year-old son locked themselves in a room to call 9-1-1 as her husband struggled to get Farrar back into the garage.

Wolfforth Police arrived shortly after – surprised at the scene they pulled up to. "Well this isn't a normal burglary. This isn't something we deal with on a daily basis, and it's probably been several years since I've seen one of this nature," said Wolfforth Police Chief Rick Scott.

Whitten says Farrar resisted arrest and kicked out one of the windows in the patrol car. She says police pulled out a taser but Farrar calmed down before police had to use it.

Some of Farrar's family members contacted KCBD Newschannel 11 and say a doctor prescribed him the antidepressant Zoloft.  There are documented cases of bad reactions to this medication and Farrar's family believes he is one of those examples. They say Farrar never would have done this if he had been in his right mind.

"Whether it's medication or not, we do not know. We've certainly had reports from family members of this gentlemen that have said medication could have played a role," said Scott.

Farrar is charged with burglary of a habitation with intent, resisting arrest, and criminal mischief. If convicted Farrar could face up to 99 years in prison.
