Police: Man high on 'magic' mushrooms tears off part of his penis

Posted: Updated:

Police say a 41-year-old Ohio man was reportedly high on hallucinogenic mushrooms when he mutilated his genitals on the grounds of Ypsilanti Middle School last week.

Sgt. Geoff Fox of the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office tells AnnArbor.com deputies were called to the school around 1 a.m. June 18 to find the man on his knees, naked, with blood all over his legs.

"He mutilated his genitals with his bare hands," Fox said. "He was doing a lot of yelling and screaming."

Fox said parts of the man's body were transferred with him to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, where he remains in stable condition.

The Detroit Free Press reports the man told investigators he picked up the mushrooms earlier in the day while in town visiting friends.

Fox said the man does not have a history of mental problems. He said results of extensive toxicology testing are pending.
