Charles Baker of Palmetto, Florida (pictured) bit part of a man’s bicep off in what police believe was a drug-fueled rage on Wednesday night,WPTV 5 reports.
The “zombie attack” took place last night while Baker was visiting his kids at his girlfriend’s house around 10:15 p.m. He began beating on the door very violently and started stripping naked. Baker, who police believe was high on an unknown substance, broke the door down, walked into the home and began throwing furniture around.
Jeffery Blake, who lives in the home, says Baker wouldn’t calm down and that he tied to restrain him. But Baker bit him in the bicep and took off part of it during the struggle. Fortunately, Blake was able to pin Baker to the floor until deputies arrived on the scene.
Here is more on what happened, according to WPTV5:
When law enforcement came inside, Blake released Baker. Baker got up, but would not respond to deputies orders. The suspect instead faced the deputies, tensing his body, clenching his fists and screaming.
Baker, still naked, acted like he was going to rush the deputies, according to the report. Deputy Wildt deployed his an electronic control device after giving a verbal warning.
Baker fell to the ground, and then tried to get back up, so Deputy Wildt deployed the device again. Baker pulled the probes out, so deputy Blake deployed his electric shock device.
Those probes were also pulled out, and Deputy Wildt deployed a second cartridge. By this time, several other deputies had arrived on scene and were able to hold him down and handcuff him.
Baker was evaluated at Manatee Memorial Hospital and charged with aggravated battery before being carted off to jail.
