The "Summer of Zombies" continues.
A west Florida man was in a drug-fueled craze on Wednesday night when he stormed his girlfriend's home, stripped naked and then bit a chunk of flesh from another man's arm, police said.
Charles Baker, 26, was supposed to be visiting his children at his girlfriend's Palmetto home when the attack occurred at 10:15 p.m., the Bradenton Herald reported. Police said Baker burst inside when his girlfriend opened the door, stripped naked and started screaming and cursing.
A man who was at the house, Jeffery Blake, 48, tried to restrain him, but Baker took a bite out of the man’s bicep. Police eventually arrived and tasered Baker twice before arresting him.
Police said Baker was high on an unknown drug.
