A 35-year-old Alaska woman who spent two hours in a Subway bathroom smoking synthetic marijuana emerged without her clothes and trashed the restaurant on Oct. 13, police said.

Nikki Abrell entered the East Anchorage, Alaska, restaurant fully clothed and went straight to the bathroom around 5 p.m., police spokeswoman Anita Shell told KTUU Channel 2 News. Two hours later, she emerged completely naked and in a rage, according to witnesses.

“People described her as ‘a little crazy,’” police Sgt. Shaun Henry said, according to KTVA. “She disrobed, went fully nude and kinda just went nuts.”

A police officer saw a young black couple drive by and pulled them over. What he did next left them stunned:

Abrell reportedly overturned tables, threw food, broke furniture, and pulled down ceiling tiles. Paramedics who attended the scene reported that Abrell had used “spice,” also known as synthetic marijuana.

Employees later found human waste on the bathroom floor after police subdued Abrell.

"I thought there was a fire in the restaurant because it looked smoky in there but it turns out she had just set off a fire extinguisher inside," Tina Anaya, a witness, told KTUU Channel 2 News. "I really didn't want to get anywhere near her. She was smearing feces all over stuff." 

Although no one was hurt during the incident, the restaurant was severely damaged.

Abrell will now face felony charges of third-degree criminal mischief, harassment and resisting arrest.
