Violent struggle results with student believed to be high on 'bath salts'


A violent struggle Monday morning between Grayson College Police and a student who they believe was high on a synthetic drug. Victoria Maranan spoke with a witness and a campus police officer about what happened.

At around 9:00 am, Grayson College Police said they were called to a disturbance at the school bookstore, where a student was said to have a psychotic episode. She apparently then walked to the administration building.

"Began going from office to office screaming that people are following her, trying to get her, trying to rape her, things of that nature. At that point it's been decided by myself and other members of the executive administration that we needed to do an emergency detention on this young lady," said GC Director of Public Safety, Andrew McPherson.

He said the student was very violent, that she kicked officers, even bit one in the arm.

"We were able to get one handcuff on her and at that point she became very aggressive towards us, began fighting with us. We did have to deploy our taser to prevent her from hurting staff members and herself," McPherson said.

But it didn't end there.
