Hallucinogenic mushrooms, a man claiming to be God and police tasers made for a volatile mix in Colorado Springs this morning.
Police officers were sent to the Residence at Austin Bluffs, an apartment complex, at 3:40 this morning to investigate what was reported to be a burglary in progress. When they arrived, they were met by a man in the hallway who charged toward them claiming to be God.
The man was tased. The taser had no effect--he charged officers again. A second tasing also had no effect.
The man was tackled after running from officers.
After receiving medical attention, the suspect admitted to smoking Psilocybin Mushrooms, a drug with similar effects to LSD.
Jorelle Antivo, 21, was arrested on a variety of charges.
