Badesalz-Junkie chased by Electricity

Von Lancaster-Online:

Believing that his car was melting and that he was being pursued by electricity, the 31-year-old Elizabethtown man abandoned his vehicle and broke into a home, police said.

Chased by the owner of the home on Gravel Hill Road in East Hanover Township, Lebanon County, police said, Seth Thomas Sanders broke into the man’s garage, fled, then jumped onto the hoods of two vehicles, including a state police cruiser, before being apprehended.

Following his arrest in the Feb. 27 incident, police said they found Sanders had been under the influence of the nation’s newest “designer drug” craze: bath salts.

Marketed as bath salts “not for human consumption,” they are sold under a variety of names, including “Red Dove,” “Blue Silk,” “Zoom,” “Bloom,” “Cloud Nine,” “Ocean Snow,” “Lunar Wave,” “Vanilla Sky,” “Ivory Wave,” “White Lightning,” “Scarface,” “K2″ and “Hurricane Charlie,” according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers.

High on bath salts? Use of ‘designer drug’ skyrocketing in state, nation, officials say (via Arbroath)
