PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. - A 45-year-old man allegedly burglarized a home while being high on meth on Thursday night.

Paradise Valley police say a homeowner called in a burglary around 9:30 p.m. at their home near Lincoln Drive and 32nd Street.

The homeowner said the burglar was a white male wearing only jeans and no shirt.

The suspect fled the scene as the officers arrived, but was later found hiding behind an air conditioning unit near Lincoln and Palo Cristi Road.

He was identified as Christopher Fulton.

Fulton was taken to a police station where police say he admitted to being extremely high on meth and to drinking vodka earlier in the evening.

Police say he started splashing himself with toilet water to try and cool off, but became very sick.

The Phoenix Fire Department was called and he eventually had to be taken to a hospital for an accelerated heart rate and the combination of drugs and alcohol in his system.

Charges are pending.

Officers say it does not appear anything was taken from the home.
