Man attacks family while naked and covered in oil in Pennsylvania


Your parents warn you that messing with drugs can make you do crazy things.

Well, one Pennsylvania man is facing charges after police say he attacked his family and then resisted arrest while tripping on LSD, naked and somehow covered in cooking oil.

Nineteen-year-old Lonnie Beatty took the hallucinogen on Jan. 16 and lost control, authorities said. He allegedly assaulted two female relatives and their children, prompting his frightened family members to hide in a bathroom as Beatty reportedly trashed the North Apollo home. Police say the dog even bit him trying to protect the family.

When police arrived, they say he was naked, wearing only a sock and covered in cooking oil. After refusing to comply multiple times, police say they stunned him with a taser.

The Tribune Review reports that a number of more serious charges, including assault and terrorist threats, were dropped after the victims refused to pursue charges against him.
