Man makes like Miami 'zombie,' getting naked, eating flesh and not going down without fight

PALMETTO -- A man under the influence went into a fit of rage and bit a piece of someone's arm off Wednesday night during a visit with his children, reports.

Much like the Miami "zombie" attack, 26-year-old Charles Baker got naked, ate human flesh and wouldn't go down without a fight, according to a Manatee County Sheriff's Office report.

Authorities say Baker went to his girlfriend's home on 25th St in Palmetto to visit his kids at 10:15 p.m. They say he was high on an unknown substance when he knocked on the door, then barged in, began yelling and taking off his clothes.

He was screaming and wouldn't calm down, then began throwing furniture around the home. Jeffery Blake, who lives in the home, attempted to restrain Baker, but the suspect bit him, taking a chunk of his flesh from his bicep. Blake, 48, was able to get Baker to the ground and kept him there until two deputies arrived.

It took several deputies to finally subdue him. Baker was taken to Manatee Memorial Hospital for evaluation before being transported to the jail.
