​The Santa Rosa County tooth fairy must be pissed this morning. Thanks to a local man named Eric Scott who was allegedly on one hell of a drug trip, she's going to need a few extra rolls of quarters to pay off his debts this morning.

Police say the 47-year-old Milton, Florida resident went ballistic after they responded to calls that he was having a medical emergency, fighting officers and eventually scraping his teeth across the hood of their patrol car with such force that he ripped off the paint. Click through for a crazy photo of the damage.

The trouble started with Scott knocking on doors, asking residents to call 911 to get him an ambulance, reports the Northwest Florida Daily News.

When the cops showed up, Scott -- whose nose and hands were bleeding freely -- became agitated, threw his flashlight at a mailbox and began to curse, threatening the deputies' lives. Then, after they cuffed him and threw him on the hood, the cops say he scraped his teeth so hard across the paint that this happened:

Shockingly enough, police now believe Scott was under the influence of a narcotic that caused hallucinations and confusion. Drug tests are pending, but the NW Florida Daily News reports he may have been high on "bath salts," the faux-cocaine sweeping through parts of Florida this year.

After they finally settled Scott down, he asked deputies to "kill him" and hospital staff to place a plastic bag over his head.

Police say he managed to cause $600 in damages with his teeth. He faces charges of criminal mischief and resisting an officer without violence.

EMS are assaulted much more frequently than you would think.  I think it's wise to send police first if possible.  On top of that, what if the police officers were 1/4 mile away at the time.  Are they supposed to just keep driving around the neighbourhood when somebodies life may be in jeopardy?  What if EMS passes by the police car 2 streets away as they watch for speeders and then EMS shows up at the scene just after the man jumped off a roof or ran into traffic and died?  Would have been a good idea to send the nearby officers first huh.

It's good you supported all that conjecture with real facts and numbers, or I never would have believed a word you said.

Why do i get the feeling none of this would have happened if drugs were not illegal. This guy got jipped when he was buying coke and was given some trippy shit that isnt even really illegal. Plus cops on a medical emergency... This reeks of bullshit, poor dude.

He probably wouldn't have bucked if they hadn't sent cops to deal with a medical emergency.  Call 911 for an ambulance and the cops show up?  I'd have gone off too.

Hell no why should EMT's put their lives at risk dealing with drug crazed psycho's. the cops probably showed up before they did to assess the situation and make sure its safe. he must've had strong teeth to cause damage to a car. imagine if he bit into a person. why do drugs in the first place then expect someone to risk their lives saving your ass when you fuck up.

"why do drugs in the first place then expect someone to risk their lives saving your ass when you fuck up."This assumes that a person using drugs expects someone to risk their lives for them.

This assumption is unwarranted and unfounded.

This is an actual medical condition called Excited Delirium (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E... ).  Better to call the paramedics than the cops in these situations.  He probably wouldn't have bucked if he hadn't seen law enforcement.  Fuck the police.
