Maniac drug blamed for tourist biting, sex and madness

egtmedia59A crazed British tourist ran around a beach biting strangers at random until police tackled him. It took 10 police officers to wrestle the man to the ground and subdue him in the Spanish holiday resort of Magaluf.

A lifeguard spotted the deranged biter chasing people across the beach, British newspapers reported. Police who arrived to calm the man down had to call for reinforcements when the biter allegedly turned and attacked them.

A doctor finally sedated the man, who was lashed to a stretcher and taken away under police guard.

According to Britain’s Daily Mail, the 28-year-old man reportedly confessed afterwards to have taken the experimental drug Cannibal, similar to another drug nicknamed Bath Salts and containing the powerful stimulant methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV).

The bizarre incident has highlighted weird and low behaviour among British tourists at Spanish resorts, summed up by one resident as “sex acts in public, drunken orgies and causing carnage”.

Magaluf is a major holiday resort on the Spanish island of Majorca, primarily catering for the British, Irish, Russian and Scandinavian package holiday market.

The drug Cannibal has led to the hospitalisation of four young people in the Spanish island of Ibiza recently. Spanish police believe it is being sold in nightclubs after a large shipment arrived on the islands, the Mail reported.

Shortly before the latest incident in Magaluf, a 17-year-old English girl was reportedly taken to hospital by a five-strong medical response team after another attack involving biting revellers.

Just days before, shocked questions were raised about young backpacker behaviour after an 18-year-old British girl was filmed running around a dance floor at a nearby Spanish bar and performing sex acts on 23 men.

The sordid stunt made headlines around the world. The young woman involved believed, mistakenly, that she had been promised a free holiday as a prize, newspapers reported. She learned afterward that “holiday” was the name of a cocktail.
