(Newser) – More evidence for those fearing a zombie epidemic: Yet another man has been arrested over face-eating, and once again, bath salts are reportedly involved. This time, a Louisiana man "bit a chunk" off his ex-wife's husband's face, police say. Carl Jacquneaux bit Todd Credeur multiple times, "removing flesh the size of a quarter," the affidavit notes. Credeur, who was doing yard work at the time, fired wasp spray to defend himself, the New York Daily News reports.

Jacquneaux then headed to an acquaintance's house, police say, where he held the man at knife point and threatened to kill him "if you don't tell me where your dad's gun is." He stole the gun before being arrested. Jacquneaux, 43, had been using bath salts, said one of Credeur's friends. But since they didn't conduct a field sobriety test on Jacquneaux, police can't say for sure, the Huffington Post notes. "Very unusual; it's not something we have every day," an officer tells KATC.
