Bath salts are back in the news for causing more insanity.
According to CBS Miami, North Miami Beach Police said a man believed to be on the drug stripped nearly naked at a children’s playground and threatened a three-year-old girl with sexual advances.
Police said surveillance video shows Shane Shuyler stripping in the tot lot and then going very close to a three-year-old girl.
The girl’s mother told police that she and her daughter had entered the park at 20th Avenue and NE 168th street and were headed to the tot lot when they saw Schuyler lying on a park bench.
Shuyler was completely naked and his genitals were exposed.
She told police she tried to walk past the man, but said he stood up, exposing his genitals to the girl.
At which point, Shuyler said to the child: “Come here little girl, I want to stick it in you.”
The bizarre incident unfolded in the tot lot that is located literally in the back yard of the North Miami Beach Police Department. Police arrested Shuyler and a detective in court said his behavior could be explained through bath salts.
“In his wallet was what appears to be bath salts,” said the detective. “Upon talking to him, he made some statements to me which led me to believe that he was cooling off in the fountain by the tot lot because he was hot; which is consistent with ingesting bath salts.”
Something really needs to be done about this growing drug craze. This can be potentially worse than the crack epidemic of the ’80s!
