Daniel was charged with “cruelty to a non-livestock animal.” On June 14, Daniel reportedly “was on a bad trip from ingesting K-2, ”got down “on his hands and knees and chased a neighbor while barking and growling like a dog,” according to witnesses interviewed by Waco police.

The man then took a small, black dog onto the front porch of the home where he beat and strangled the animal. And, worst of all, Daniel reportedly then “began to bite into the dog, ripping pieces of flesh away,” police said.
The poor dog died at the scene.

Here is more on this bizarre story:
Officers found Daniel sitting on the porch with blood on his hands, clothing and face, Swanton said.
He was “initially incoherent and unresponsive,” Swanton said, and was taken to Providence Health Center by ambulance.
While waiting for paramedics to arrive, Swanton said, Daniel asked officers to fight him or use a stun gun “to help him get off his bad trip,” Swanton said.
Officers did neither, Swanton said.
Daniel was awaiting booking at the McLennan County Jail Friday afternoon.
K-2 is a synthetic form of marijuana.
According to CNN, K-2 has been linked to schizophrenia. And it also can cause “increased heart rate, loss of consciousness, paranoia, hallucinations and psychotic episodes.”
K2 has been banned in 40 states in the United States.
