Paso Robles man eats poop while on trial
March 26, 2015
A Paso Robles man on trial for bank robbery put his hand into his pants, took out feces and ate it while testifying on Wednesday.
Andrew Gilbertson, 40, is accused of robbing the Bank of America located at Santa Rosa and Higuera streets in San Luis on July 2013. He pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
While on the stand, Gilbertson said the Virgin Mary told him to rob the bank. He then said the Virgin Mary told him to eat feces.
Judge Donald Umhofer called a recess after Gilbertson began eating poop. Later in the day, a mental health expert testified that Gilbertson hears voices in his head.
