Josephine Smith wasn't kidding when she approached 69-year-old Milton Ellis Wednesday night in the parking lot of a shuttered St. Petersburg, Florida Hooters and declared "I’m a vampire, I am going to eat you.”

In fact, the 22-year-old vamp wannabe then began tearing away at the skin on Ellis's face and arm with her teeth, resulting in wounds that would take multiple stitches to close up. Eventually, Ellis, who is confined to a motorized wheelchair, got away and called 911.

When the police found Smith she was still in the Hooters parking lot, covered in blood and not wearing any pants or underwear. She wasn't able to offer up to the authorities any coherent explanation for the blood or the half-nudity. Smith is being charged with felony aggravated battery on an elderly person, and remains in jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
