2 arrested while naked, 'tripping out' on mushrooms

ENID, Okla. — Two men were arrested Sunday after they knocked on doors in a neighborhood the middle of the night while naked and "tripping out" on hallucinogenic mushrooms.

Nicholas Jon Eubanks, 26, and Bradley Martin Ferguson, 27, both were charged with felony counts of indecent exposure.

According to affidavits filed in the cases, Enid Police Department officers responded at about 1:25 a.m. Sunday to two reports of unwanted guests.

At one home, a neighbor reported that Eubanks had been banging on the door of a home, asking for help for a friend who had taken mushrooms. When the officer arrived, he found Eubanks sitting on a bench, wearing just a shirt and jacket, naked from the waist down.

Eubanks told the officer he and two friends had taken some bad mushrooms and he was really "tripping out," according to the affidavit. Eubanks later told the officer he was hallucinating and seeing demons.

Not far away, another officer responded to a report of a man in someone's front yard, screaming. A homeowner said Ferguson had rung the doorbell several times. 

When officers arrived, they found Ferguson, completely nude, with a blank stare on his face, according to the affidavit. Officers noted that his speech was slurred and he was slow to answer questions. He did not appear to realize he was naked.

Ferguson and Eubanks were arrested and later released on $1,000 bonds. 

Details for this story were reported by The Enid (Okla.) News.

  • Cats outsmart the researchers

    I knew a lot had been written about dogs, and I assumed there must be at least a handful of studies on cats. But after weeks of scouring the scientific world for someone - anyone - who studied how cats think, all I was left with was this statement, laughed over the phone to me by one of the world's top animal cognition experts, a Hungarian scientist named Ádám Miklósi.

  • Do your genes make you procrastinate?

    Procrastinators, in my experience, like nothing better than explaining away their procrastination: General busyness, fear of failure, and simple laziness are just a handful of the excuses and theories often tossed around. Now researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder have added another option to the list: genetics.

Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado has been suspended five games for sucker punching Pittsburgh’s Travis Snider during a bench clearing brawl on Sunday. You OK with that suspension?

Yes. Seems fair.
No. Baseball NEVER gets it right in these situations. Should have been at least 20 games for his sucker punch into a pile of players.
Not sure, but I’d love to see baseball be like hockey and allow two guys to fight for a while before breaking it up. Let’s see how tough Maldonado is then.
