Not sure if Forrest Gump ever said “Crazy is as crazy does,” but if he did, maybe it’s because he read something similar to the affidavit describing the events in this story. The incident gives new meaning to the terms shotgun approach, naked gun, stir crazy and window of opportunity.

Sure, we all go a little crazy now and then. Even Waylon Jennings wrote a song about being crazy helped him from going insane. But Amanda Page Halamar certainly gives new meaning to a few old idioms. Mannford Police Officer Michael Mashburn responded to a domestic disturbance call at Lake Shore Motel on March 18 in which there was yelling and body slamming into the walls reported.

Upon arrival, he finds a shotgun resting upon the sidewalk and two men, Chance Rodkey and Houston Templeton, milling about outside room 133. Rodkey told Mashburn that there was a woman named Halamar in the room who “was going crazy and had attacked Templeton over a text message to another woman.” Hashburn attempted to make contact with the woman by knocking on the door. It took several attempts, but she finally opened the door and must have thought it a good idea to do so in only a towel. Perhaps she thought it might be a good start to making amends with Templeton. However, her greeting was anything but pleasant as she became instantly “aggressive” upon seeing a police officer. Immediately and with a very colorful expletive to go along with her yelling, Halamar exclaimed that the shotgun belonged to her and then attempted to take it from Hashburn.A struggle ensued and while officers were wrangling with her to quash her attempt to retrieve the shotgun, the towel dropped leaving her completely nude. She was then able to slip from the officers’ grasp briefly and again reach for the shotgun while making an attempt to enter back in the room. It failed and she was placed into custody. The excitement wasn’t over yet though as the naked

The excitement wasn’t over yet though as the naked Halamar was placed into a patrol car. While officers were interviewing the two men and searching for Halamar’s clothes, she kicked out the door glass of the car. By the time officers realized what she had done, she was half way out of the window ,according to the affidavit. Another struggle took place as they attempted to push her back in the car. As before she put up a fight, kicking and screaming obscenities at officers. She even bit Officer Johnny Porter on the leg, the affidavit reads. Once back in the car, Halamar began kicking at the back window to attempt another escape. She did this all the way to the police station.

Once there, she was read her Miranda Rights and asked. if she would speak to officers. She replied yes and then gave consent to search her room. No other questions were asked following the consent due to her being “belligerent”, the affidavit reads. During the questioning of Templeton, He stated that the altercation began with Halamar throwing things at him and hitting him in the head with a cell phone. She then jumped on his back and began biting his head. Officers noted that Templeton was bleeding from his head. He then pushed her away and tried to exit the room, but Halamar blocked the door. He then pushed her out of the way of the door and the two men left. Apparently Halamar wasn’t finished with the fight. She grabbed her loaded shotgun pointing it at Templeton. Rodkey was able to knock the gun from Halamar’s hands and then kicked it out of the way, according to his statement to police. A search of the motel room produced several shotgun shells , a .22 Rg revolver, shells and digital scales with traces of methamphetamine residue, according to the affidavit. A records search showed
