A man police believe was high on meth was arrested at Salt Lake's Greyhound station Monday afternoon after putting a mother in a headlock.
Officers were called to the bus station, 300 South 600 West, on a report of a fight just after 1:30 p.m. Officers arrived to find a man holding a woman in a headlock.
The man later admitted to police he had done three lines of meth earlier in the day. Officers were forced to use a Taser several times on the man before getting him into handcuffs, said Salt Lake City police detective Jeff Bedard.
The woman told police she was waiting for a bus with her baby and had just met the man. She did not know why the man started attacking her, Bedard said.
Mario Primo Santana Espinoza, 26, was taken to a local hospital for an evaluation. Possible charges against the man will be screened by the Salt Lake District Attorney's Office, Bedard said.
