A Fort Walton Beach man is accused of getting high on meth and attacking a mattress.

Okaloosa County Sheriff's Deputies say Felipe Oquendo, 37, admitted to smoking meth then attacked a mattress with a bed post and his bare hands. He said he thought there was a man hiding inside it.

Deputies say they got the call after his girlfriend escaped the home on Willow Bend around 1:10 Friday morning.

His girlfriend told deputies Oquendo was acting erratic, saying he thought she was cheating on him with the man in the mattress. Deputies say he stabbed the mattress with a bedpost then ripped it apart with his hands.

Oquendo is charged with false imprisonment and possession of drug paraphernalia.
