Bath Salts are behind another attack in upstate New York. 35-year-old Pamela McCarthy was arrested after she was reportedly caught naked in public beating her 3-year-old son.
Police had to use a stun gun on McCarthy to subdue her. She later passed away at the hospital.
WSYR-TV in Syracuse is reporting that officials said they encountered a “violently combative” suspect and were initially unable to handcuff her.
“She really was not coherent to what was occurring around her,” New York State Police Capt. Rodney Campbell told reporters Wednesday. “She was not speaking clearly.”
This is not the first time troopers had to deal with McCarthy. They have allegedly caught her under the influence of bath salts multiple times.
On Tuesday, officers first tried using pepper spray to no effect and were forced to Taser the woman, Campbell said. It still took two men, a trooper and a fire fighter to finally cuff her, he added.
We heard growling … and a kid crying so we went outside and opened up the door,” neighbor Heather Ames told YNN-TV. “There (McCarthy) was, lying on the ground holding her 3-year-old kid in her arms and just beating him.”
The boy’s father, Jason Williams, was able to wrestle the boy from his mother and run to safety. After her son was taken, McCarthy began to strip off her clothing and threatening bystanders.
When police arrived, McCarthy was abusing her pet pit bull. After ignoring officers pleas to stop they were forced to subdue McCarthy by trying to pepper spray her, and then tasing her.
Just another in the long string of attacks in the bath salt zombie apocalypse. Hear the eye witness account below.
