Bath salts, bra and panties and a goat - NEVER a good combination

    A US man found wearing women's underwear and standing over a goat's carcass told West Virginia police he was high on bath salts.

    Mark L Thompson of Alum Creek was arrested at his home on Monday. A criminal complaint in Kanawha County Magistrate Court charges the 19-year-old with cruelty to animals.

    Sheriff's Deputy JS Shackelford says witnesses reported Mr Thompson standing near a neighbour's pygmy goat in a bedroom. He was wearing a bra and female underwear. The goat had at least one stab wound.

    Corporal Sean Snuffer says Mr Thompson indicated he had been high and "wasn't in his right mind".

    Mr Thompson was held on $50,000 bond yesterday at the South Central Regional Jail. Jail records didn't indicate whether he had a lawyer and no listed phone number was available.

    Putting aside the other interesting aspects of this case, what's the deal with the bath salts? When did bath salts turn into a drug? Does the 10 year old bag of Crabtree & Evelyn bath salts shoved in the back of my linen closet have some kind of street value?

    These aren't the bath salts you use to take a soak in the bath in...

    Thanks for that, EStreet.

    Tough week for goats. First, we find out that Osama Bin Laden had daily goat delivery service and now this.

    Why wasn't the goat wearing women's underwear? This dude doesn't know how to party at all.

    "Bath salts" are part of a synthetic drug ban that recently passed in Virginia.
