Zombie Apocalypse Spreads to New Jersey
Over the weekend, we got our first news of a 'Zombie Apocalypse' after a man attacked another, chewed his face and wouldn't stand down after being fired on by police. That incident happened in Miami. Now comes more startling news from New Jersey.
The Jersey incident involves a 43-year-old man who stabbed himself and then threw pieces of his skin and intestines at police who were trying to subdue him. The NY Daily News reports
Officers encountered 43-year-old Wayne Carter on Sunday morning when they responded to reports of a man barricaded in a room in Hackensack and threatening to harm himself, police Lt. John Heinemann said.
Two officers kicked in the door and saw Carter in a corner, holding a knife in his hand, police said. Carter, ignoring the officers' orders to drop the knife, stood up and stabbed himself in the abdomen, legs and neck, they said.
Carter yelled at the officers and took an aggressive stance, and the officers used pepper spray in a bid to subdue him, but it had no effect, Heinemann said.
Similar to the Miami incident, the man was resistant to initial police measures to subdue him.
