The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have said there's no threat of a "zombie apocalypse," but Miami police might disagree.
A homeless man who was busted hassling customers in a Boston Market in North Miami Beach on Saturday told police he wanted to "eat" them and tried to bite an officer, cops said.
After cops yanked him from the chicken joint and put him in a police cruiser, Brandon De Leon, 21, slammed his head against the plexiglass divider and shouted at officers, "I'm going to eat you," NBC Miami reported.
He then growled, gnashed his teeth and tried to bite the hand of an officer attempting to treat his head wounds.
"Brandon growled and opened and closed his jaw, slamming his teeth like an animal would," the report said.
Cops placed restraints on De Leon and fit him with a Hannibal Lecter-style bite mask, the report said.

But once in a jail cell, De Leon continued the flesh-eating act, snarling and growling, police said.
De Leon and Brian Yerdon, 33, who was also arrested, had been guzzling rum and Four Loko before the bust, according to local reports.
Hospital blood tests showed that De Leon was also high on marijuana, Xanax and a designer drug called "Cloud 9" — known as synthetic pot or herbal incense — which can produce hallucinogenic effects similar to “bath salts,” the drug thought to be connected to last month's face-eating attack on Miami's MacArthur Causeway.

North Miami Beach linked the two cases in a department-wide email.
"This bears resemblance to the incident that occurred in the City of Miami last week when a male ate another man's face," the email to the officers said, according to WPTV television.
In bond court on Tuesday, De Leon told the judge he didn't remember anything from that night.
His bond was set at $7,500 on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
