‘I’m a eat you’: Crazed naked man high on bath salts threatens to eat police officers as they try to arrest him on golf course
A ‘zombie cannibal’ was tasered by police after he charged at them wielding a golf club.
Karl Laventure, 21, was believed to be high on bath salts when he tried to attack the officers in Lilburn, Georgia.
And after they had managed to subdue him he began threatening to eat them.
Laventure appeared out of some woods and was seen running naked around a golf range near Atlanta, swinging a club around his head and screaming.
Police said that it took several officers to subdue the man who had ‘super-human strength’.
‘He came running at us out of the woodline,’ officer Ross Hancock told local station WSBTV.
At first, they tried using pepper spray to stop him, but that left him undeterred.
‘He didn’t even wipe his eyes, he just kept them open,’ Mr Hancock said of the pepper spray.
They then turned to their Tasers and though that momentarily shocked Laventure to the ground, it did not stop him.
‘Among other things he said “I’m'a eat you. I’ll eat you, I don’t want to eat you but I will,”‘ one witness told Fox News.
Though they controlled him enough to force him to a nearby hospital, he attacked one of the nurses on the scene and another fight ensued.
His behavior is being blamed on the use of the synthetic drug called bath salts, which was also linked to previous violent outbursts throughout the country.
‘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,’ Mr Hancock said.
There have been a number of ‘cannibal’ incidents linked to bath salts in recent weeks.
Bath salts, a synthetic amphetamine cocktail known as ‘the new LSD’, was the believed drug of choice for Rudy Eugene, who he chewed off homeless man Ronald Poppo’s face in Miami in May.
While a man in Louisiana, Carl Jacquneaux, was arrested when he bit off a piece of his neighbour’s cheek, which a friend blamed on bath salts.
