Video: Karl Laventure was High on Bath Salts During His Zombie Attack

Police in Gwinnett County, Georgia say that 21-year-old Karl Laventure, who admitted to being high on bath salts, had super-human strength and threatened to eat them [and customers] at a golf driving range last month (video below).

Officer Ross Hancock told WSB-TV that Laventure was half naked, running through a pond and threatening customers at the range with a golf club when he arrived.

Officer Hancock recalled that a blast of pepper spray didn’t seem to phase Laventure: “He didn’t even wipe his eyes, he just kept them open."

It took four shocks with a taser to get Laventure to the ground. But before it was all over, Laventure received a total of 14 taser jolts.

Disturbing video released by authorities shows Laventure being pinned to the ground and mumbling incoherently: “I’m'a eat you. Four Four. Oh God. Don’t make me eat you.”

Officer Hancock said: “He was still talking gibberish, still cussing, still saying he wanted to eat us, eat other people."

'Bath salts' have been suspected in a number of zombie-like attacks in recent months.

Mephedrone, the active ingredient in bath salts, is a synthetic stimulant that users say makes them feel energized and confident. At toxic levels, the drug reportedly causes intense confusion and sometimes violent rage, spikes in body temperature and hallucinations.
