In the latest string of zombie attacks horrifying Florida, a black man has bitten off part of another man's arm
Charles Baker, 26, was visiting his kids at the home of his girlfriend in Palmetto, Florida. Witnesses say that he was high on an unknown substance when he arrived and barged down the door, yelling and stripping off his clothes. Any attempt to calm down the raged, naked man were useless. Baker then began throwing furniture around the home. Jeffery Blake, 48, who lives at the house and answered the door, tried to restrain Baker who then bit him, taking a chunk of flesh out from his left bicep. Despite his injuries, Blake managed to wrestle Baker to the ground and hold him until the police arrived. However, Baker was so high that he fronted up to the authorities, tensing his body, clenching his fists and screaming. A deputy deployed his electronic shock device after giving Baker a verbal warning. Baker repeated attempts to attack the officer and was Tasered a total of four times. The crazed man then tried twice to pull the probes out of the device, but was finally restrained and handcuffed. He was then taken to Manatee County Jail for evaluation before being transported to jail. Officials have not released how badly Blake was injured and his condition of recovery. The case is similar to that of another African-American Rudy Eugene, 31, who ate the face of homeless man Ronald Poppo in Miami. Eugene was shot dead by officers when he refused to stop eating his victim's face at the grisly scene.
