And the "zombie apocalypse" continues .... The drug K-2 led a man to attack several people and chase around a neighbor while growling like an animal before he brutally killed and ate a dog.
Michael Terron Daniel told his housemates that he was 'on a bad trip' after taking the synthetic drug K-2 and began attacking them.
Daniel got down on his hands and knees and began barking and growling like a dog. He then chased the neighbor, who ran into his house.
As horrified witnesses watched, Daniel allegedly turned his rage towards a medium-sized Spaniel mix, who belonged to one of his housemates, beating and choking the animal.
Daniel then "took a bite out of the dog, ripping pieces of flesh away and eating them."
Police showed up to find Daniel sitting on the front porch with the dog's carcass on his lap. With blood and fur around his mouth and blood and fur on his clothing.
Daniel was in some kind of a catatonic state and did not respond to the officers at first, but when he snapped out of it, he asked the officers to tase him or fight him to snap him out of the bad trip.
The officers declined, and an ambulance took him to a nearby hospital, where he was treated and later released.
Daniel was arrested on Monday at the Waco store where he worked and was charged with cruelty to a non-livestock animal, a felony.
His housemates declined to press assault charges against him.
He is being held at the McLennan County Jail on $5,000 bond.
Daniel has been in trouble with the Waco Police Department before, but would not elaborate on any past cases against him.
K-2, also known as 'spice,' is a mixture of herbs and spices that is usually sprayed with a compound similar to THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana, according to the DEA.
Side effects include paranoia, panic attacks, giddiness and in rare occurrences – violence.
First bath salts, now this. Stick to weed, man. It’ll make you hungry enough to eat a horse, but not crazy enough to eat one.
