Ga. Man High On 'Bath Salts' Shook Off Multiple TASER Shots

July 05, 2012  | 

Gwinnett County (Ga.) Police officers subdued a 21-year-old man who had ingested "bath salts" after hitting him with four TASER shots, reports Fox News.

Karl Laventure, 21, of Atlanta was arrested after threatening to eat customers at a golf range and screaming about rapper Tupac Shakur and religion.

Responding officers used pepper spray on Laventure, who wiped it from his eyes.

Glad the taser did the trick and no Officers were injured. This crap is getting out of hand and I pray the departments country wide advise their people of the dangers of this mixture. Stand clear and use the taser first, then if need be, lethal force. I'd rather read about some pos being dumped then attend another blue burial. Stay Safe.

For zombies on bath salts, one inter-cranial lead injection works every time.
