Published Jun 09, 2017Bonnaroo got underway in Manchester, TN, yesterday (June 8), and police have already had to step in.
As reported by the Associated Press, the Coffee County Sheriff's Department have charged 45-year-old David E. Brady of Albany, NY, with two counts of counterfeit controlled substances. That's right, at a music festival (of all places), he's been arrested for selling fake drugs.
Brady was busted with more than a thousand doses of counterfeit substances, including 1,000 hits of fake acid, 22 bags of fake mushrooms, pills made to look like ecstasy, counterfeit cocaine and an incense stick of "black tar heroin."
According to a spokesman for the sheriff's department, Brady was caught when deputies spotted what they believed to be drugs under a tent. As they approached Brady, he threw something behind him, but still appeared to have a bag of mushrooms hanging from his waistband.
As for his reasoning behind the massive stash of counterfeit drugs? Brady allegedly told the deputies that he was "doing God's work."
Despite the hit to the fake drug supply, Bonnaroo will continue to rage on tonight (June 9). Head over here to tune into performances from the likes of U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Weeknd and Chance the Rapper throughout the rest of the weekend.
