Josephine Smith, Self-Proclaimed "Vampire," Allegedly Bit 69-Year-Old Man Outside Hooters
Welcome to the age of Twilight, where 22-year-old Josephine Smith thinks she's a vampire and allegedly bit a 69-year-old homeless man sleeping outside a Hooters restaurant.
According to an arrest affidavit from the St. Petersburg Police Department, the elderly gentleman was sleeping outside the Hooters around midnight yesterday when Smith got on top of him and said, "I'm a vampire, I am going to eat you."
That's when the cops say Smith began to bite the man.
Smith "bit the victim on the arm, removing the top layer of his skin," the report says.
