CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia man found wearing women's underwear and standing over a goat's carcass told police he was high on bath salts.
Mark L. Thompson of Alum Creek was arrested at his home Monday. A criminal complaint in Kanawha County Magistrate Court charges the 19-year-old with cruelty to animals.
Sheriff's Deputy J.S. Shackelford says witnesses reported Thompson standing near a neighbor's pygmy goat in a bedroom. He was wearing a bra and female underwear. The goat had at least one stab wound.
Cpl. Sean Snuffer says Thompson indicated he had been high and "wasn't in his right mind."
