A 20-year-old man has been arrested and an elderly woman lucky to be alive after he allegedly hit her over the head with a shovel while high on bath salts.
High: Robert William White, 20, was hand cuffed and carried out of an apartment building after allegedly getting high on bath salts and then hitting an elderly woman with a shovel (file photo)
Police who responded to reports of the man trying to kill the woman at the apartment complex found White barricaded inside his apartment.
White was holed up for nearly an hour before police were able to enter his apartment with a key and subdue him using a 40mm rubber bullet and Taser.
Up until then a resident nearby, Abraham Cabrera, said that he had heard White screaming profanities and threatening to kill someone while glass broke.
Drugs: White admitted to mixing a soda with the bath salts, before he was seen swinging at birds and then the woman's head
Carried out of his apartment handcuffed, while strapped to a wheelchair, witnesses reported him yelling: 'God loves you all.'
Police said White admitted to drinking a soda mixed with bath salts, while also saying he's an alien and is able to speak to Jesus Christ.
Emergency rooms in the U.S. are having to treat a wave of agitated, violent and psychotic patients high on a the synthetic drug containing a chemical derivative of methcathinone.
Increasing violence from the abusers have in several instances gone as far as biting other people's flesh in attacks described as cannibalistic and resembling 'zombies.'
The drug is not addictive but causes acute toxicity.
While not currently banned by Federal Law it is in many regions, including the city of Los Angeles since last Fall.

He kept his clothes on and didn't try to eat her...

That will make a bad impression on her mind.
(I wouldn’t say that if she wasn’t OK...)
It was bath salts lite. 50% fewer calories, and reduces between-meal cravings for human flesh.
When you cannot score meth you snort this s***
Seriously though, WTH is this stuff? I grew up in a dirty skeezbag factory town and my classmates were doing all sorts of drugs (which is why I wasn’t into them). Have never seen anything like bath salts, they’re like a cross between PCP and meth with a buttload of demonic zombie thrown in for grins and giggles. Scary stuff.
Just an idle chemical pass-time...
if true, this is very disturbing... LEO's are only allowed to possess/use 37mm launchers because they will not except military 40mm rounds
i truly hope this is a reporting error cause if not, things have definitely taken a turn for the worse
I’m pushing a rumor that urinal cakes will get you high but it has to be mixed with urine to work correctly.
Do you have any evidence that things have take a turn for the better any time in the past couple decades?
It doesn’t sound even remotely pleasurable for the user, so I just don’t understand why anyone would take it voluntarily unless already deeply disturbed.
If this substance were to become widely abused, day to day life would fairly rapidly begin to resemble a cheap horror flick.
I’m guessing that the users we read about are already pretty far gone in the brain anyway.
They’d just about have to be, that or they’re completely unaware of the effects. I just can’t envision a sane person wanting to experience this.
double plus ungood!!!
We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that weve set. Weve got to have a civilian national security force thats just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded. Barack Hussein Obama, 7/2/2008
They dont call it a Civil Defense force, that would imply we need (or perhaps deserve) defense.
The official name is National Civilian Community Corps.
I think of it as the NATCCC, or simply the NATCs...>
Last summer in a town near me a guy killed his elderly neighbor and took her head home with him. Police found him wearing her dress.
He had a long history of drug abuse issues and an even longer history of mental health issues. His own family had been trying to get him locked up for years but the courts wouldn’t touch it because he’s a PhD. so he clearly couldn’t be nuts. Now his family has joined the victim’s family in a big lawsuit against the state.
Well, I hope these reports are an isolated, extreme example and not widely representative. A drug that can reduce people to totally unhinged feral animals is very worrying. What if some nut or terrorist deliberately disbursed this stuff in a whole community, via food, water or something else? It would make fictional Bon Temps, Louisiana look like Sunday school.
“Wire the Governor and tell him I said...OOWWW!!”
The only thing more dangerous than an educated fool is an educated psycho.
BATH SALTS!!??? Seriously!!?? Jeez, where have I been to have missed out on this bit of information. Working 10-12 hour days sure does cut into my keeping up with the outside world.
“a guy killed his elderly neighbor and took her head home with him.”
That’s food for thought!
Someone must have put bath salts in the Burger King salt shakers.
I caught that too. Same round as an M203 Grenade launcher. They’re using THOSE for riot control!?
We just had a (former) high school principal here in Florida who went berserk from his heavy drug use yesterday, burst into a group home for people with hearing disabilities and stabbed 6 of them (killing two). Then he got back in his car and tried to run over several complete strangers and knocked down and then pursued some poor 12 yr old kid on a bike (the boy hid behind a telephone pole and survived).
I think he’d probably been let off easy in the past because of his educational and employment status, but crazy is crazy. And drugged out of your mind is drugged out of your mind.
They still haven’t released the info on what he was using. He had been into crack, which also causes completely uncontrollable violent behavior, so it may have been that.
At least he didn’t try to eat anyone, so I expect he’ll get a more lenient sentence...
There are actually people who get high by sniffing the gas made by mixing urine and poo in a sealed jar and letting it ferment.
I don’t remember what it is called.
Talk about desperate...
Then there’s the krokodil concoction in Russia that eats the flesh down to the bone. Maybe it’s just my mood, but I don’t feel sympathy for people that are so stupid to do something that messes with their brains in such a disturbed way or eats their flesh down to the bone.
