Man Sentenced to 25 Years For LSD-Fueled Attack on Police Officer

ST. JAMES, Mo. (KMOX) – A St. James man whose bizarre behavior led to his conviction on several charges last September was sentenced Monday.

Scott Davis Jr., 23, was sentenced to 25 years in prison in connection with his actions of April 18, 2012.

On that night, a police officer in O’Fallon, Missouri responded to a report of an out of control man. The responding officer found Davis naked in the middle of the street.

Davis told the officer, Thomas Kenyon, he was Lucifer, then knocked Kenyon to the ground.

According to prosecutors, Davis then punched, choked, and bit the officer in the face. The officer used a taser on Davis but it had no effect. The officer then shot Davis twice with his gun.

Prior to the officer’s arrival, Davis had assaulted a female victim with a medieval-style club, causing severe bleeding and a broken jaw.

Davis was charged with first-degree assault, armed criminal action, forcible rape, and first-degree assault on law enforcement.

Davis’ father told police his son had been using LSD. Catherine Naber, the female victim, testified that she gave Davis a drug she believed was LSD.
