This is very concerning behavior if he was previously healthy and this is new for him. I would see if you can have him evaluated right away by a health professional. This could be the result of clandestine drug use or could be a psychological break. Either way it could be a dangerous situation for him and those around him. He needs to examined carefully and have tests performed to get to the bottom of his change in mental status.
