( 4UMF NEWS ) Mom Tased To Death By Police:
Bath salts may be behind the deadly meltdown of an upstate New York woman suspected of beating her 3-year-old son before cops used a stun gun to subdue her, according to reports.
Following the Tuesday night incident, Munnsville mom Pamela McCarthy later died at a hospital after going into cardiac arrest from the effects of the Tasing, reported ABC affiliate WSYR-TV in Syracuse.
Officials said they encountered a “violently combative” suspect and were initially unable to handcuff her.
The child’s father, Jason Williams, talks to reporters in front of the home of Pamela McCarthy, an upstate New York woman who stripped all of her clothes off and was allegedly assaulting her child in front of her home.
“She really was not coherent to what was occurring around her,” New York State Police Capt. Rodney Campbell told reporters Wednesday. “She was not speaking clearly.”
McCarthy, 35, appeared to be high on the synthetic drug linked to a spate of horrific crimes in recent weeks, cops said.
This was not the first time troopers had to respond to calls at the house. They allegedly caught McCarthy under the influence of bath salts multiple times, Campbell said.
Damn, bath salts are no joke!
