Hopped up on bath salts, Robert William White hit an elderly woman in the head with a shovel on Thursday. The 20-year-old Glendale native fled to his apartment after the attack, and it took an hour-long face-off with police, rubber bullets and a Taser to bring him down. They eventually wheeled him out of the building bound to a chair as he screamed "God loves all you."

He had a different message for his victim, who he reportedly told "I hate you and I want to kill you" before swinging away with the shovel. Authorities also say they heard him rambling about being an alien. The victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a hospital.

Another day, another bath salts-related episode. What's it going to take for people to leave this shit alone?
