While under the possible influence of bath salts, a Florida man bit the hood of a police car causing nearly $600 worth of damage, ABC News said.
According to witnesses, Eric Scott, a 47-year-old resident of Milton, Fla., was walking around his neighborhood, knocking on doors and telling anyone who would answer to call 911 for a medical emergency, Northwest Florida Daily News said.
Police reports said when officers from the Santa Rosa County Sheriff's office arrived, Scott began to walk away from them while cursing to himself. He then began screaming at the officers to shoot him, ABC News said.
Police Sgt. Scott Haines told ABC News that Scott already had multiple self inflicted injuries to his hands and blood coming from his nose, ABC News said.
As police waited for emergency responders, Scott, began to scrape his teeth across the hood of their patrol car, digging through the paint to the bare metal, ABC News said.
Scott's bizarre behavior displayed many symptoms caused by ingesting bath salts. His symptoms include hallucinations, confusion, loss of direction and erratic behavior, Northwest Florida Daily News said.
Charges are pending against Scott for criminal mischief and resisting an officer without violence, which are both misdemeanors, Northwest Florida Daily News said.
