As bath salts continue to be the heart of controversy when it comes to cannibalistic behavior, a woman smokes bath salts after having a baby and attacks a nurse and a cop.
According to the Huffington Post, a Pennsylvania mom who had just given birth is accused of smoking synthetic “bath salts” in the hospital and going on a violent rampage, assaulting a nurse and a police officer. 31-year-old Carla Murphy delivered her baby on June 15, and two days into her recovery, police say that Murphy smoked the synthetic drug, prompting her to strip off her clothes and go wild in the bathroom.
The Atloona native then proceeded to roll around on the shower floor, confused and unable to state her own name. While the police tried to control the situation and calm Murphy down, a nurse administered the anti-psychotic drug Haldol. Murphy responded by punching a nurse in the face.
While under the hard influence of the psychotic drug, Murphy remained aggressive despite the efforts of the hospital staff and police. As an officer attempted to restrain her, Murphy managed to stand up, hit and attempt to bite the cop. Police then handcuffed and arrested Murphy, who also kicked a nurse in the chest on her way out of the room.
Once Murphy was detained, police received the authority to search the new mother’s home, where they found more bath salts, aluminum foil, and a broken glass bottle with brown residue on it. Murphy is currently in Blair County Prison with charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, felony possession of a designer drug and harassment. The police subsequently arrested her boyfriend Michael Stewart, on drug paraphernalia charges after a search of his home.
The Murphy’s new born is now in the hands of social services while Murphy waits for her trial.
