With the Bonnaroo Music Festival activities officially underway in Manchester, TN, as of yesterday, June 8, the number of likely arrests over the course of the weekend is sure to climb. Already, one particularly absurd story has arisen, involving David E. Brady, 45, of Albany, New York. Brady was arrested yesterday and charged with two counts of “counterfeit controlled substances.” When apprehended, Brady reportedly told deputies that he felt he was “doing God’s work” in selling the fake drugs.
For clarity, the charges entail that he brought in fake substances that he claimed to be drugs. The report further details that the suspect was in possession of “pills made to look like ecstasy, 22 bags of fake mushrooms, about 1,000 hits of fake acid and counterfeits made to look like cocaine and an incense stick of black tar heroin.”
How, exactly, the man believed he was acting on behalf of a deity is unclear. However, given Brady’s wanted status for an separate felony bench warrant in Arkansas, he may want to pray for an astute legal counsel.
