Nope, nope, nope. This is exactly why I’ve never been a big fan of hallucinogens (unlike this poor soul, if his t-shirt is any indication), specifically because I’m terrified this exact same thing would end up happening to me. Seriously, can you think of a worse way this situation could’ve ended? I sure as hell cannot.
I can’t even imagine what it would have been like to live through this ordeal in his shoes. People telling you help is coming, getting chased by the cops and physically pummeled, along with a ferocious dog and and throw in getting Tased?
Yeah, acid is totally not for me.
And I don’t even know how much LSD somebody would even take to potentially trip balls as hard as this kid was, but I can just hear my father now: “The key is everything in moderation, Matt.” I don’t know if that’s ever been more true.
According to the video’s description on YouTube, the alarming incident happened outside of the library on the campus of University of Central Florida. Hopefully the kid in question has already made a full recovery – both mentally and physically – and maybe law enforcement can be understanding of a mistake made “that one time in college.”
Per UCF Knight News, a new video has emerged showing the arrest from a the perspective of a chest camera worn by one of the officers involved. Crazy stuff.
