NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man was arrested after he said he had taken bath salts and then threatened a police officer.

An affidavit said neighbors on Louisiana Avenue called police Monday night to report 22-year-old Xavier Christmon was acting crazy. When police got on the scene, they said he was naked, pacing back and forth inside his apartment, and talking, but he was not making any sense. He told police he had taken some bath salts.

When police went in to arrest him, Christmon resisted. Officers tased him twice, but he still kept fighting back.

Officers said he told one cop he wanted to eat his face, and tried to bite him.

Police said he was so violent that paramedics had to give him a shot to get him to calm down.

Christmon was eventually taken into custody. He has been charged with resisting arrest and assault of officer. He was held on $10,000 bond.
