A 20-year-old Glendale man was arrested Thursday after police said he struck an elderly woman in the head with a shovel and then barricaded himself inside his apartment. It took a rubber bullet and Taser before officers were finally able to subdue him.
The man, Robert William White, sat handcuffed in a wheelchair yelling “God loves all you!” several times to bystanders as paramedics removed him from his apartment in the 1000 block of Spazier Avenue and transported him to a nearby hospital. He admitted to police that he had been drinking soda spiked with the synthetic drug known as bath salts.
“He seemed completely out of sorts,” said Northwest Glendale Police Lt. Bruce Fox.
