#1 Police: Man Rips Off Penis During Drug-Fueled Craze06-24-2013, 08:55 PM
YPSILANTI, Mich. (WWJ) – An Ohio man remains hospitalized after injuring himself in a drug-fueled craze.
Washtenaw County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a burglar alarm at Ypsilanti Middle School late one night last week and found the 41-year-old man naked, screaming and bleeding from his groin.
The man had ripped off parts of his own genitals and had lost enough blood to make it a life threatening situation. The man, along with the parts he tore off were transferred to an area hospital.
The man later told police that he had taken mushrooms while visiting friends at a house nearby.
I'm thinking he was showing signs of being upset about something.

He may have had other mental health issues going on than just the effects of magic mushrooms. Or he may have taken way too many of them over a short period of time.
If someone has undiagnosed mental health issues, or has borderline personality disorder, using hallucinogens can be very dangerous, much more than it would be for the average one-time experimenter.
Usually, it is PCP or LSD that brings on the weirdness like this, as they are stronger drugs than mushrooms are. But if someone ate a whole lot of mushrooms, maybe even combined them with other drugs, like cocaine or uppers, it could get really crazy fast. Not weed, though, it's pretty much a given that if someone is taking hallucinogens, they are probably also smoking weed at the same time.

Talk about going off half-cocked.

I had hoped, when I read the headline, that he'd stolen a penis, rather than literally ripped off his own, although I'm not sure that it would have made the situation any less bizarre.
On the plus side, he can now claim to be transgendered and get all kinds of benefits for it.
Sic Hacer Pace, Para Bellum.

Once he gets out of the mental hospital, that is. Thankfully, we still consider it to be a violation of the Baker Act for one to cut off his own penis. We probably always will, because otherwise, doctors would lose out on all that money they get for doing sex change operations.
The Baker Act is the law that allows for involuntary mental health hospitalization in situations where the individual is a risk to himself or the community.
