GWINNETT COUNTY, GA – And the bath salt train just keeps on rollin’ along. This time a Georgia man was arrested after snorting bath salts, eating shit, and then trying to fight a cop.
It all started last Tuesday when 21-year-old Matthew Hammond’s mother called 911 to report her son was acting like a nut. She said he was “walking around out of his mind, armed with a knife…talking about he’s going to hurt somebody.”
When an officer pulled up to the home, he was greeted by a highly agitated Hammond charging towards his car with something silver in his hand. The officer pulled away and Hammond gave chase, banging on the windows and trying to open the car door.
The officer got out of his car with his gun drawn and ordered Hammond to drop whatever he was holding in his hand and to get on the ground. Hammond initially refused, challenging the officer to fight, but eventually got on the ground.
The item in his hand was not a knife, but rather a cell phone. Hammond had dropped the knife outside earlier and his brother picked it up and took it back in the house before the officer arrived.
Once in custody, the officer said Hammond continued to act strangely. He was speaking gibberish, often to imaginary people, and kept repeating “I put that shit on everything,” a phrase from a hot sauce commercial.
Turns out he wasn’t kidding. The officer noted that he smelled the strong odor of feces emitting from Hammond’s mouth and under closer observation, the officer noticed Hammond had “feces in his mouth and on his teeth.”
According to the police report, Hammond was taken to the hospital for treatment and eventually admitted that he had smoked marijuana, drank alcohol and snorted “a lot” of bath salts. When asked why he had been carrying a knife, he explained, “Yo, somebody was about to get stabbed.”
Hammond is now in jail without bond, charged with felony obstruction and disorderly conduct.Tags: bath salts, crimes, Drugs, feces, Georgia, Matthew Hammond
