UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Police say bath salts are to blame for a domestic dispute that occurred late Friday night at a home in the 900 block of Downer Avenue.

Utica police responded to the call and spoke with the mother of 20-year-old Aubrey Valis. His mother said that Aubrey was acting in an abnormal manner and becoming very aggressive towards her and her husband. Police say the family was afraid to go back into the home because Aubrey made threats to kill the family.
