‘I’m a eat you': Crazed naked man high on bath salts threatens to eat police officers as they try to arrest him on golf course

A ‘zombie cannibal’ was tasered by police  after he charged at them wielding a golf club.

Karl Laventure, 21, was believed to be high  on bath salts when he tried to attack the officers in Lilburn,  Georgia.

And after they had managed to subdue him he  began threatening to eat them.

Laventure appeared out of some woods and was  seen running naked around a golf range near Atlanta, swinging a club around his  head and screaming.

Police said that it took several officers to  subdue the man who had ‘super-human strength’.

‘He came running at us out of the woodline,’  officer Ross Hancock told local station WSBTV.

At first, they tried using pepper spray to  stop him, but that left him undeterred.

‘He didn’t even wipe his eyes, he just kept  them open,’ Mr Hancock said of the pepper spray.

They then turned to their Tasers and though  that momentarily shocked Laventure to the ground, it did not stop him.

‘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,’ Mr Hancock told the station.

A video clip of the June 14 arrest shows  Laventure lying face down on the ground, shirtless, mumbling seemingly  disconnected thoughts and threatening to eat the faces of the officers.

‘He was still talking gibberish, still  cussing, still saying he wanted to eat us, eat other people,’ Mr Hancock added.

The video shows him talking about the  deceased rappers Biggie and Tupac,  making animal sounds, and continuing to  threaten the police officers.

‘Among other things he said “I’m’a eat you.  I’ll eat you, I don’t want to eat you but I will,”‘ one witness told Fox  News.

Though they controlled him enough to force  him to a nearby hospital, he attacked one of the nurses on the scene and another  fight ensued.

His behavior is being blamed on the use of  the synthetic drug called bath salts, which was also linked to previous violent  outbursts throughout the country.

‘I’ve never had to encounter somebody who  acted like this before, so there’s no telling what they may do when they are  high on this drug,’ Mr Hancock said.

There have been a number of ‘cannibal’  incidents linked to bath salts in recent weeks.

Bath salts, a synthetic amphetamine cocktail known as ‘the new LSD’, was the believed drug of choice for Rudy Eugene, who he chewed off homeless man Ronald Poppo’s face in Miami in May.

While a man in Louisiana, Carl Jacquneaux,  was arrested when he bit off a piece of his neighbour’s cheek, which a friend  blamed on bath salts.
