A man caught with more than 1,000 fake narcotics was arrested yesterday at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, local publication The Tennessean reports. When confronted by police, he claimed he "was doing God's work."

The man, 45-year-old David E. Brady of New York, was reportedly wearing "bags of mushrooms" around his waist when spotted by police on the festival grounds. Upon searching him, they counted 22 bags of fake mushrooms, along with "1,000 hits of fake acid, 20 bags made to look like cocaine, and an incense stick made to look like black tar heroin."

Brady was charged with two counts of possession of counterfeit controlled substances. He is being held in the nearby Coffee County jail on $120,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on August 11.

Meanwhile, Bonnaroo continues its second of four days today with performances from Major Lazer, U2, Portugal. The Man, The xx, and more.
