YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP, Mich. - A 41-year-old man from Columbus, Ohio, is recovering after, police say, he ripped off part of his penis while high on hallucinogenic mushrooms.
The man was found naked, screaming and bleeding heavily at Ypsilanti Middle School at around 1:00 a.m. last Tuesday by officers who were responding to a burglar alarm.
The man was taken into custody for his own safety and transported to the hospital.
Police said that when questioned the man said he was in town visiting friends and had picked up the mushrooms earlier in the day.
The man is still hospitalized and undergoing treatment.
