In the latest string of zombie-like flesh-chewing attacks, Charles Baker, 26, of Palmetto, Fla., was reportedly high on an unknown substance when he arrived at the home of his ex and his children on Wednesday night. Baker reportedly knocked, pushed his way in and then started yelling, while stripping off his clothes. When he started throwing the furniture around, resident Jeffrey Blake, 48, “tried to restrain Baker, but the suspect bit him taking a chunk of his flesh from his bicep,” reports Blake was able to hold Baker until the first deputy, Wildt, arrived. Blake let Baker up, but Baker tensed, and screamed as though he were going to rush the deputy, so Deputy Wildt tasered him –twice — removing the prongs from Baker each time to reset the device. Tasering didn’t do much good, but it slowed Baker down enough to allow more deputies to arrive at the scene. Then, as a group, they were able to subdue and cuff Baker. He was taken to Manatee Memorial Hospital and evaluated before being charged with aggravated battery.

Louisiana man Todd Credeur was doing yard work when acquaintance, Carl Jacquneaux, 43, with whom he had been having a domestic dispute, showed up at his house and allegedly attacked him, biting him on the face. Jacquneaux left when Credeur sprayed him in the face with insecticide. Jacquneaux was apprehended after going to the home of another acquaintance, who he held up at knife point and robbed of a handgun. No blood work was done, but according to Shreveport Times, his girlfriend believed he was high on bath salts at the time. Jacquneaux is charged with aggravated burglary, simple battery of the infirm, violation of probation, aggravated second degree battery and violation of protective orders. Bail has been set at $312,500.
