This is the stark-raving madman police say bashed a 77-year-old woman in the head with a shovel after he got high on bath salts, a terrifying new drug that's legal in most places.

Officers say White claimed was an alien and that we was speaking directly with Jesus Christ because of the drugs he took.
Raving: Robert William White, 20, screams 'God loves you all!' as he is carted out of his apartment after allegedly bashing an elderly woman with a shovel
When the elderly woman approached White, he was swinging a shovel at birds.
'I hate you and I want to kill you today,' he told the woman when she asked him to stop, according to a neighbour speaking to the www.glendalenewspress.com/news/tn-gnp-0622-suspect-ingested-
Police who responded to reports of the man trying to kill the woman at the apartment complex found White barricaded inside his apartment.
'He seemed completely out of sorts,' said Northwest Glendale Police Lt Bruce Fox speaking to the paper.
White was holed up for nearly an hour before police were able to enter his apartment with a key and subdue him using a 40mm rubber bullet and Taser.
Until then, a resident nearby, Abraham Cabrera, said that he had heard White screaming profanities and threatening to kill someone while glass broke.
