Good lord, maybe this really is becoming a trend?
Following the "Miami Zombie" attack, yet another Florida man got high, got naked and got cannablisitic in that order. Police up in Palmetto, Florida had to Taser 26-year-old Charles Baker after he stormed into his girlfriend's home and bit a chunk out of the bicep of a man who tried to subdue him.
Last night at about 10 p.m., Baker stormed into the home where his girlfriend and children live. He was high on "an unknown substance," and barged into the home and proceeded to strip his clothes off. He was cursing and screaming, and begin throwing furniture around the home.
Jeffrey Blake, 48, another resident of the home, tried to restrain Baker. Baker struggled and then bit Blake, "taking a chunk of meat out of his left bicep," according to the arrest report.
Even with part of his arm now chewed off, Blake was able to restrain Baker on the ground until Manatee County Sheriff's Deputies arrived. Upon their arrival Blake released Baker, but he would not comply with the officers' demands. He clenched his fists and continued screaming.
That's when one of the officers took out his stun gun. Baker was Tasered once, but then got up again, so the deputy struck him with electricity again. He then tore the stun gun's probes out. So the other officer pulled out his stun gun and stunned Baker. He again got up. After his fourth shock, police were finally able to get him under control.
Baker was taken to Manatee Memorial Hospital, and was charged with aggravated battery.
