• Cops: Naked man covered in cooking oil attacked family

    APOLLO, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania man is facing charges after police say the 19-year-old attacked his family while tripping on LSD and then resisting arrest while naked and covered in cooking oil.

    The Tribune Review says a number of more serious charges including assault and terrorist threats were dropped after the victims refused to pursue charges against him at a preliminary hearing Tuesday.

    Police say Lonnie Beatty had taken the hallucinogen on Jan. 16 and lost control, assaulting two female relatives and their children. Police say he destroyed a North Apollo house and the victims hid in a bathroom.

    The family dog bit Beatty trying to protect them.

    When police arrived, they say he was naked, wearing only a sock, and covered in cooking oil.

    They say he was shot with a stun gun after refusing to comply multiple times.

    No attorney information is available.
