IDS: A man attacked another man late Sunday night in Jacksonville, Florida, leaving the victim in critical condition. Police say that the attacker was under the influence of "bath salts", a synthetic drug. The man was left with half of the skin on his face missing after the attacker ate it off of him as he screamed. This is the second time we have seen a Florida man on bath salts eat the face of another man. "When does it stop?" Rebecca Williams asked. "The zombies are out to get us."
