Another "zombie-like" attack? Man eats family dog after police say he ingested synthetic drug K-2


June 26, 2012

WACO, Texas - Police in Waco arrested 22-year-old Michael Daniel Monday after they say he ate a dog.

Family members called police on June 14th, saying Daniel assaulted people at the home, chased a neighbor and started barking and growling.

What happened next is horrific.

Witnesses say Daniel grabbed the family dog, beat and strangled it...then started to eat it.

The dog died at the home.

Daniel is believed to have been on a bad trip from ingesting "K-2," a synthetic drug.

He was taken to the hospital and now faces a felony charge for animal cruelty.

'Bath salts' suspect due in court in Glendale shovel attack

Glendale News-Press

June 26, 2012


The Glendale man who was apparently high on the synthetic drug known as "bath salts" last week when he allegedly attacked a 77-year-old woman with a shovel is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on charges of first-degree burglary and assault with a deadly weapon.

The man, 20-year-old Robert William White, was arrested Thursday after the attack, but police first had to fire a rubber bullet and Taser to subdue him during a brief standoff when he barricaded himself inside his apartment.

As White was carried off and handcuffed to a chair, he yelled “God loves all of you” to bystanders, the Glendale News-Press reported.
Police said he later told officers at the hospital that he had ingested "bath salts" that were dissolved in a soda he was drinking.

Prosecutors on Monday charged White with assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly striking the elderly woman with a shovel as she walked in the 100 block of Spazier Avenue, according to a Los Angeles County Superior Court criminal complaint.

Authorities added the first-degree burglary charge because White allegedly briefly entered the woman’s apartment as she called police for help.
The woman was treated for what police described as non-life-threatening injuries.
Denver woman says she urinated on $30 million painting during bath salt bender

Carmen Tisch says she was 'shocked' and 'ashamed' in TV interview after seeing footage of herself defacing the artwork at the the Clyfford Still Museum

A Denver woman caught on camera urinating on a $30 million Clyfford Still painting last December in now saying she was under the influence of bath salts when she had her museum meltdown.

Carmen Tisch, 36, told KDVR-TV that she doesn't remember the day she stumbled into the Clyfford Still Museum and was caught on security cameras pummeling a 10-foot-tall, 13-foot-wide painting by the noted Abstract Expressionist before urinating on the work.

"I was a pill popper, heroin addict. I was in the methadone clinic for while," Carmen Tisch said. "And when I got off the methadone that’s when I started drinking a lot. That’s when I was doing the bath salt."

Now sober, the heavily tattooed Tisch said she was in shock when police told her what she had done after she came down from her high a few hours later in a jail cell.

"I'm kind of scared to watch it just to see myself like that," Tisch told the station.

"I was in shock," Tisch said. "I was ashamed and also a little relieved that I didn’t murder somebody."

The painting suffered an estimated $10,000 in damage, The Denver Post reports.
Police initially thought she was under the influence of alcohol.
Tisch is now on probation after a stint in jail and spending time in two psychiatric wards, the station reported. She also is tested weekly for drugs and alcohol.
Tisch's lost day wasn't her first run-in with the law. She was busted for armed robbery in 2010 and for drunken driving in 2008.
Tisch says there are only two things she needs to stay sober.
"I got God, and I also have a daughter," Tisch said. "My daughter, she comes in my mind every time now."
Bath salts are a hallucinogenic drug that have recently been linked to numerous bizarre -- and often grisly -- crimes across the U.S.
The drug can cause hallucinations and paranoia, authorities say.
Indiana man’s naked ‘incense’ induced rampage caught on video

An Indiana man went on a naked rampage, attacking police as they tried to taser him - and it’s all caught in a video released last week.
The footage, which was posted on LiveLeak Friday, shows David Martin walking down the middle of the street in the buff and punching people during a violent night-time frenzy in Indianapolis on May 20, according to Fox 59 .
Police responding to the scene attempted to subdue the 27-year-old with a stun gun, but the shock had no effect on Martin, who continued to fight the officers with karate-like kicks.
"This guy's like a ninja, man. Holy s--t!" an unidentified narrator says during the clip.
“No way! That guy’s strong, he’s got to be on something,” the narrator adds.
Martin allegedly injured a female officer when he pushed her into a building. He also punched a male cop in the face several times.
The video shows a crowd of onlookers gathering to watch Martin’s bare-bottomed antics, with several bystanders eventually stepping in to help cops restrain him.
Martin was charged with battery, resisting law enforcement and public indecency.
Martin admitted to using Spice, a synthetic form of cannabis, shortly before the rampage.
A state-wide ban on Spice is set to go into effect in Indiana on Sunday.
The video was posted on the same day that an Arizona man was arrested for stripping down and going on a wild carjacking spree.
John Brigham reportedly caused two car crashes and injured seven, including a pregnant woman whose suffered two broken legs during the mayhem.
The 45-year-old tore off all his clothes, jumped onto the roof of an SUV and started chanting after his first crash.
Police: Man high on bath salts screamed about eating faces

Kerry Kavanaugh

July 2, 2012


Gwinnett police say a man they were trying to arrest had super-human strength and admitted being high on bath salts.

Police told Channel 2's Kerry Kavanaugh they were called to a Lilburn driving range after receiving a call about a hysterical man.

Workers said Karl Laventure, 21, Alpharetta got a hold of a club and was running all around the range.

Police video of the arrest shows several officers holding the man on the ground as he threatened to eat them.

An officer said they shot the video to show how many men it took to keep him down.

"He came running at us out of the woodline," Officer Ross Hancock of the Gwinnett County Police Department told Kavanaugh.

Hancock was the first to arrive at the Atlanta Golf Center on Beaver Ruin Road in Lilburn on June 14.

He said Laventure was running all around the range, through a nearby pond, half naked, out of his mind.

Hancock said his partner first pulled his pepper spray.

"He didn't even wipe his eyes, he just kept them open," Hancock said.

That's when he said he pulled his Taser. He says Laventure went down, but got right back up again.

"We had to Tase him approximately five more times on scene to get him down. It took several officers to hold him down to get him cuffed," Hancock said.

"I'm'a eat you. Four Four. Oh God. Don't make me eat you," Laventure screamed on the video.

"He was still talking gibberish, still cussing, still saying he wanted to eat us, eat other people," Hancock said.

"He evoked the words Tupac and Biggie, amongst others. Just crazy random things," Sgt. Rich Long of the Gwinnett County police said.

Long said the officers held him down while waiting for an ambulance, but once they were at the hospital it started up again.

"He jumped on the floor, he caused the nurse to jump up on the chair. Several of the hospital security guards came in along with our other officers in the room," Hancock said.

Police say they shot Laventure with the Taser a total of 14 times. He was charged with misdemeanor offenses of disorderly conduct and obstruction.

"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," Hancock said.
Salesman died after taking 'bath salts' drug in sex session wearing wellies, gas mask and rubber suit

A theology graduate who wanted to be a priest died after taking designer drug “Sextasy” during a bizarre internet sex session.

Paul Iles took the drug, also known as Bath Salts, during sex games while wearing a gas mask, rubber suit and Wellies.

An inquest heard the 31-year-old telephone salesman had taken off the rubber gear before collapsing in his kitchen.

His naked body was found on the morning of April 28 by his partner Ian Newman.

A postmortem revealed Mr Iles had the designer drug in his blood stream.

Police traced other men who had chatted with Mr Iles on the sexually explicit Cam4 website on the night of his death.

Former lover Gwillyn Thear said he saw him just hours before he died.

He said: “I observed Paul on the internet and saw him in full rubber suit and with a gas mask.

"He seemed happy for the short time I could see him

“Paul was still on the website at 4.15am and I sent him a text and said I was going to bed.”

The inquest heard Mr Iles, of Cardiff, had a heart attack after taking methylenedioxypyrovalerone – the chemical name for Sextasy.

Coroner Mary Hassell recorded an open verdict saying: “The drug is new and medical knowledge is very limited.

"It could have caused his death, it could have had nothing to do with it, or it could have been a factor.

"But there is not enough evidence to say why Paul died.”

Mr Newman, Mr Iles’ partner for four years, said: “Paul had recently been experimenting with legal highs.

"He also sometimes took poppers through his gas mask or just sniffed it from the bottle.”

The inquest heard Mr Iles, who wanted to be a priest, had strong religious views and would try and convert people on nights out.

Christopher Davies, a friend of the couple, said: “Paul and Ian had a semi-open relationship and were both happy with this.

“Paul could be very stubborn and forthright with his religious views.”

The inquest was also told Paul liked to engage in high risk sex.

His friend Paul Tallis said: “Paul liked to wear ear plugs, gas mask and full rubber suit.

"This comes with a very high risk and I have known a few people who have died from this.”

Sextasy – or Bath Salts because it resembles Epsom Salts – has recently been made illegal in the UK.

The drug speeds up the central nervous system and produces a number of powerful effects similar to amphetamines.

These can include hallucinations, paranoia and violent behaviour.

Other side-effects can include an increased risk of a heart attack, kidney failure, liver failure and suicide.

Reports have also said users have a markedly increased tolerance for pain.
