CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- 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."
Thompson was held on $50,000 bond Tuesday at the South Central Regional Jail. Jail records didn't indicate whether he had an attorney and no listed phone number was available.
