Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A MAN high on BATH SALTS bit a po­lice car bon­net leav­ing teeth marks, scrap­ing off the paint and caus­ing £400 worth of dam­age.

Cops re­sponded af­ter Eric Scott, 47, was re­ported knock­ing on doors ask­ing for med­i­cal help and when they ar­rived he asked them to SHOOT him, po­lice said.

Scott had al­legedly been ask­ing neigh­bours to call 911 with blood pour­ing from his nose.

When po­lice hand­cuffed Scott as they waited for med­i­cal help they said he started scrap­ing his teeth across the car.

He was taken to hospi­tal in Mil­ton, Florida, where he con­tin­ued ask­ing cops and doc­tors to kill him. He was later re­leased but could face charges.

Bath salts, which in­duce vi­o­lent out­bursts, were banned by U.S. drug of­fi­cials last Oc­to­ber.
