Bath salts strike again folks. This time a woman growled at police naked, punches and strangles son while naked before getting tasered to death! Read on for the bat shit crazy story.
The mother who beat her three-year-old son while allegedly high on ‘bath salts’ was photographed running naked through the street – moments before police used a Taser to subdue her.
Pamela McCarthy, 35, went into cardiac arrest after the struggle with state troopers outside her apartment in Munnsville, New York on Tuesday. She later died in hospital.
The shocking photograph, taken by a neighbor, shows McCarthy running towards the child as he clings to his father in fear.
Neighbors had called police at 7.45 p.m. to say the woman was punching and choking her son, attacking neighbors and strangling one of her dogs.
The woman’s boyfriend, Jason Williams, told WSYR he saw her running naked outside their apartment and ran to grab their son, who McCarthy had been beating and trying to strip.
In a recent spate of violent attacks across the country, alleged users of ‘bath salts’ have taken off their clothes, claiming the illegal synthetic drug causes them to burn up.
As state troopers responded to the scene, other neighbors called to report she was becoming increasingly violent.
One neighbour told WSYR: ‘She was… just running back and forth around the street and she got a hold of one of her dogs and she was rolling around on the ground with her legs wrapped around it – she was strangling the dog.’
Another said: ‘She was definitely on something. Who does that?’
When officers arrived at the scene, they found McCarthy was ‘violently combative’ and apparently under the influence of the drug, police said.

Troopers said the woman growled at them as they approached her and claimed she tried to bite one of the officers.
When trooper Christopher Budlong tried to arrest McCarthy, she resisted. In an attempt to subdue her, he used his police-issued pepper spray, but to no effect.
He then deployed his Taser and was able to handcuff her. After she was taken into custody, she went into apparent cardiac arrest, police said. She was taken to hospital but later died.
Williams said she had a history of drug abuse but was stunned to see her behavior.
‘I told her mom, “She needs help”,’ Williams told WSYR. ‘Everyone says to get rid of her because I tell all mean stories. I got nothing good to say. I love her…love her to death…then I seen that.’
Her three-year-old son was taken by ambulance to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse and was treated for minor injuries. He is now with Williams’s mother
