Police: New mom smoked bath salts in Pa. hospital

31-year-old Carla Murphy is charged with aggravated assault and various drug counts for allegedly stripping naked and fighting with staff at the Altoona Regional Hospital

The Associated Press

ALTOONA, Pa. — A new mother has been charged with smoking the powerful synthetic stimulant known as bath salts two days after she gave birth, while still in the maternity ward of a central Pennsylvania hospital.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 31-year-old Carla Murphy, of Altoona, who is charged with aggravated assault and various drug counts for allegedly stripping naked and fighting with staff at the Altoona Regional Hospital on June 17. She faces a preliminary hearing Aug. 8.

The Altoona Mirror reports hospital police had to be called to subdue Murphy after she stripped, rolled around on the shower floor, and couldn't answer questions from hospital staff.

Police later found the drugs in Murphy's personal effects and at her home.
