Not again! Gwinnett Police of Lilburn, Georgia say a man they were trying to arrest had super-human strength and admitted to being high on bath salts.
Police were summoned to a Lilburn driving range after receiving a call about a crazed man running around the range with a golf club in hand, according to WSB-TV Atlanta.
Karl Laventure’s, 21, arrest is caught on police video, which 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.
Officer Ross Hancock, of the Gwinett County Police says:
“He came running at us out of the woodline.”
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.
Hancock said: “He didn’t even wipe his eyes, he just kept them open.”
That’s when the officer says he pulled out his Taser. Laventure went down, but got right back up again, according to the officer.
“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.”
Laventure screams on the video, yelling:
“I’m’a eat you. Four Four. Oh God. Don’t make me eat you.”
These recurring bath salts incidents seem to be getting more ridiculous. We hope that this strange drug phenomenon is explained to us more thoroughly, as these drugs remain a mystery to most.
