What can go wrong after you eat a bag of magic mushrooms, right? You giggle a lot and you see some strange things. Well, that's what a "friend" told me anyway. Not the case for these two brothers from Indianapolis! They must be growing some terrorizing mushrooms up there!
It turns out, 24-year-old Noah Batz and his 21-year-old brother, Timothy Batz ate some magic mushrooms, got naked and then wreaked havoc around an Indianapolis apartment complex. The Batz brothers pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to a combined 17 charges including public nudity, battery and resisting arrest. This all stems from events at the Lighthouse Landings Apartments on Indy's south side on Sunday.
One witness said, "We knew it was something beyond just drinking or high. It was something heavy duty. Not a good batch of whatever he got." According to court documents, one neighbor came outside her apartment to find the men naked and on tip of each other. She told police that they yelled to her, "Hey look at us, look at us." I have to admit, I might have laughed at these two idiots!
The one witness said that as she walked to her car, Noah Batz ran after her and punched her in the face. She said, "He was extremely aggressive and then to hear later he punched somebody, it wasn't surprising with how agitated he was and he continued to get more agitated." The brothers are also accused of threatening to kill the apartment complex's assistant manager. She told police that she went to tell other residents to stay away from the two men and when she did, one brother began banging on her car screaming, "I'll kill you!" She also told police that she saw the brothers, "grab onto each other's head and passionately begin making out with one another in front of the dumpster." Okay, now that is gross because they're brothers.
Several other neighbors told police that the men had damaged their cars. They are accused of breaking into several open vehicles, getting inside and damaging items and getting blood on the seats. The Batz brothers due back in court in May.
I have to agree with that one witness in saying that there had to be more than magic mushrooms, because I took.....I mean a "friend" of mine took them when we were younger, and it mellowed them out. It just made them laugh so hard their stomach would hurt the next day. They would also see some weird things. I've never heard of someone eating magic mushrooms and becoming violent....ever! There was either something wrong with these guys or they were on something stronger than mushrooms. Or, here's a long shot, but since magic mushrooms are picked out of cow dung (I know gross, right!), is it possible that the cow whose poop their mushrooms were picked from suffered from mad cow disease? Just a thought. Either way, these brothers went "Batz-shit" crazy!
