A 20 year old man, Robert William White was arrested Thursday after he struck and elderly woman with a shovel while under the influence.
Of what you may ask?
The latest craze, bath salts of course!
According to reports it took a tazer and rubber bullets for the police to get the young man under control.
The Glendale News reports:
The man, Robert William White of Glendale, sat handcuffed in a chair yelling “God loves all you” several times to bystanders as paramedics carried him out of his apartment building in the 1000 block of Spazier Avenue in Glendale and transported him to a nearby hospital. He admitted to police that he had been drinking soda with bath salts in it. “He seemed completely out of sorts,” said Northwest Glendale Police Lt. Bruce Fox.
White barricaded himself inside his apartment for nearly an hour until police opened his front door using a key and walked inside to get him, Fox said.
Police were initially called to the scene about noon after getting reports that White had tried to kill the woman in a nearby apartment building.
The article also states that Robert told the elderly woman “I hate you and I want to kill you today” while attacking her with a shovel.
The woman whose name has not been released thankfully didn't suffer any fatal injuries but was taken to a hospital to be treated.
Will the bath salt epidemic ever stop?! This is getting out of control.
