man busted selling fake drugs at Bonnaroo says he was “doing God’s work”
Music festivals and drugs seem to go hand in hand, at least that’s the perception to a lot of people. One man, David E. Brady, decided to take matters into his own hands at Tennessee fest Bonnaroo, which is currently underway, by selling fake drugs to people, claiming he was doing “God’s work.” From the Knoxville Sentinel:
When deputies approached Brady, sheriff’s spokesman Lucky Knott said, Brady tossed the items behind him.
When Brady stood up, Knott said, he had bag of mushrooms hanging from his waist band.
Authorities searched Brady and, according to an arrest warrant, found 37 pills made to look as if they were molly – a synthetic drug that alters mood and perception, 22 bags of fake mushrooms, about 1,000 hits of fake acid, 20 bags made to look like cocaine and an incense stick made to look like black tar heroin.
The arrest warrant goes onto say the Brady told deputies that he was “doing God’s work by selling fake drugs.”
Brady was arrested and sheriff’s department investigator James Sherrill charged Brady with two counts of possession of counterfeit controlled substances.
After learning that there was also an outstanding bench warrant in Arkansas, Brady was also charged with being a fugitive from justice.
