Man on Shrooms Severs Own Manhood
An Ohio man's horrifying mushroom trip is sure to scar him—and everyone who reads about it.
An Ohio man is recovering after he tore off part of his own penis during a magic mushroom-fueled craze, authorities report. Washtenaw Country Sheriff's deputies responded to a burglar alarm set off at Ypsilanti Middle School late one night last week when they found the 41-year-old man, naked and screaming on the playground, according to local Sgt. Geoff Fox. The man had reportedly torn off enough tissue to lose a life-threatening amount of blood, and was rushed to the hospital along with his severed body part. "He really wasn't saying much at all—a lot of yelling and screaming," says Fox. "He wasn't making sense. They couldn't really communicate with him in terms of constructive conversation." He later told police that he had consumed some magic mushrooms at a friend's house nearby prior to the incident. Fox says his blood results have been sent to a lab to determine if the mushrooms were laced with anything. The man remains in the hospital, and no comments have been made about the current state of his manhood.
