• Tuesday, October 13 12:50 a.m. Methamphetamine is not a drug for the faint of heart, especially when consumed in mass quantities. Marissa Wheeler had ingested so much meth that she called 911 from Trinidad four different times stating that she was dying. The day before she had also called 911 and reported that she was having a bad trip, so she was taken to Mad River Community Hospital in Arcata. Before she could receive medical treatment, she left. Now she was back in Trinidad, causing a disturbance at the Chevron, tweaked out of her mind as the Go!-Go!-Go! powder pulsed through her bloodstream, making her feel like she was about to check out for good. Deputies arrested Wheeler and took her to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility to sober up.
