By PoliceOne Staff

ATLANTA — Police arrested a man who stripped down to his underwear at a local golf course and threatened to eat people after using bath salts, authorities said.

Karl Laventure was seen near a wooded area at Atlanta Golf Center ranting about cannibalism, religion and rapper Tupac Shakur, according to MyFoxAtlanta

"Among other things, he was saying things like, 'I'll eat you. I don't want to eat you but I will,'" Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Jake Smith said.

Police said Laventure, stripped to his underwear, came at them and would not follow their commands. Officers deployed pepper spray and hit him with a TASER four times before he was restrained.

Laventure said he had smoked a joint "sprinkled with bath salts." He will face charges of disrupting police and disorderly conduct.
