Bath salts struggle is real
A terrifying ‘zombie cannibal’ is thought to have been high on bath salts when he attacked police officers with super human strength and threatened to eat them.
Frightened golfers at a driving range in Alpharetta, Georgia, called the cops when 21-year-old Karl Laventure went on a hysterical rampage running around half-naked waving a golf club, reported WSBTV.com.
Video footage shows the crazed man being held down by several officers as he screams incoherently about God, Biggie and Tupac, and then threatens, “I’ll eat you! Don’t make me eat you.”
The rant is eerily similar to the notorious case of Rudy Eugene, who ate the face off a homeless man in Miami, Florida in May, while growling at the authorities when they tried to restrain him. It was strongly suspected that the 31-year-old was on bath salts, however, the Medical Examiner’s office recently revealed that only marijuana was found in his system at the time of the attack.
During the latest incident, Laventure “came running at us out of the woodline,” Officer Ross Hancock of the Gwinnett County Police Department told WSBTV, and when his partner blasted him with painful pepper spray. “He didn’t even wipe his eyes, he just kept them open.”
“I’ve never had to encounter somebody who acted like this before, so there’s no telling what they may do when they are high on this drug,” explained Hancock.
Where is the D.A.R.E. program when you need it!? Stay off them bath salts folks or protect ya face from zombies.
