Following reports that a man ate his 40-pound family dog and another man in China chewed a woman's face, the latest "zombie" news is that a naked man high on the street drug "bath salts" threatened to eat police officers on a Georgia golf course.
The synthetic drug “bath salts.”
Twenty-one-year-old Karl Laventure was suspected to be on bath salts when he ran out of the woods at a Liburn, Georgia golf course -- naked. According to the Daily Mail, Laventure appeared crazed, "swinging a club around his head and screaming."
Police were called to the scene, where the situation became even more bizarre.
"He came running at us out of the woodline," explained Officer Ross Hancock of the Gwinnet County Police Department. The officer continued that police attempted to subdue the man with pepper spray, but it seemed to have no affect on Laventure.
"He didn't even wipe his eyes, he just kept them open," Officer Hancock said to WSBTV.
Police then used a Taser on Laventure, who went down, but quickly got back up. According to Hancock, they had to use the Taser five more times on the 21-year-old to get him down. Even after being Tasered it took several members of the police department to handcuff Laventure.
It was while being handcuffed that Laventure began to yell, "I'm'a eat you. Four Four. Oh God. Don't make me eat you."
"He was still talking gibberish, still cussing, still saying he wanted to eat us, eat other people," Officer Hancock continued.
Fox News reports that paramedics were able to "bring him out of his haze" with medication. After admitting to smoking a joint that was sprinkled with bath salts, Laventure slipped back into his bath salt state, lunging at police officers.
Karl Laventure was arrested for disorderly conduct and disrupting a police officer.
