Because you are playing with fire. Another story highlighting the glamorous life of being high on bath salts.
The Chandler man accused of burning his son's hand because the child touched his Bible was under the influence of a designer drug, his mother said Monday.
"He was hallucinating that he was seeing demons and spirits and stuff," said Connie Salazar of her son, Johnny, 25.
"Who knows what else he could have done on that drug?" she said Monday, speaking to 12 News.
Salazar shares custody of the boys with their mother, who lives in Casa Grande. Both Salazar and the boys' mother live with their own parents. He was watching the children Sunday.
Salazar's parents noticed the red blistering on the wrist and hand of the 5-year-old after returning from church and asked Salazar what happened, Favazzo said.
Salazar told his parents he used a cigarette lighter to burn his son's hand and the back of his wrist, Favazzo said.
"The boy was touching his Bible, and he thought the boy may be possessed," Favazzo said.
The boy told his grandmother, "Well, Dad burned me for touching his Bible."
Salazar was talking gibberish and not making sense, Favazzo said.
