An Indiana man is facing DUI and other charges after police say he was so high on psychedelic mushrooms that he couldn’t walk when he was pulled over.
A Lake Forest officer responded to a cell phone report of a possibly impaired driver drinking beer while driving April 25 at 1:30 p.m. The officer stopped Michael Keogh, 38, of Valparaiso, IN, at Route 41 and Gage Lane.
Police said they found open beer bottles, cannabis and drug paraphernalia in the car. Keogh admitted taking psychedelic mushrooms and was unable to walk without help or complete a field sobriety test.
He was taken into custody and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving under the influence of drugs, improper lane usage, illegal transportation of alcohol, possession of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on $3,000 bond with a June 10 court date.
