A naked, bloodied 17-year old girl was last Saturday arrested in Melbourne, Florida after going on a violent spree while screaming, ‘I’m Satan!’ and ‘I’m God!’
According to police, the unnamed teen jumped through the glass of an occupied house, struck a stranger and a car, before coming to their face to yell those words. She was tasered, arrested and taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center.
Four hours later, the teen told cops that she had taken what she thought was LSD … but based on her behavior while under the influence, officers believe she was high on new party narcotic flakka.
‘Whatever she was on, it was some mind-altering narcotic. The characteristics which exhibited are just like flakka,’Melbourne police Cmdr. Dan Lynch told Florida Today, adding, ‘One of the characteristics is that it raises your inner core temperature…so that causes them to take their clothes off.’
The synthetic stimulant’s use is becoming increasingly popular in Florida, and it has become a great cause of concern.
‘The chiefs are discussing it and it’s definitely a concern,’ said Lynch. ‘Our narcotics units are doing an enforcement campaign and notified our school resource officers. But we only have 12 more days of school before the summer break begins.’
The teen was charged with burglary, battery and criminal mischief.
