NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – When police drove up to the parking lot of Flynn’s Tire and Auto Service Saturday night, they saw a naked woman who they say appeared to be having a psychotic episode.

Katrina Flowers, 21, ended up lying on the ground. Police said she refused to cooperate, and yelled, cursed and spat at them.

Flowers had to be tied down and sedated after police said she tried to kick one of the officers and a cruiser, before getting into an ambulance.

Investigators think she was using a synthetic drug, like flakka or bath salts, which can cause paranoia and psychosis.

Police arrested Flowers again on Monday night for a domestic violence incident involving her parents, and say she threatened officers.

She is due back in court next Wednesday.
