According to, deputies were called to the school around 1:00 a.m. June 18 for an alarm.

The man broke a window at the school, which set off the alarm, said Sgt. Geoff Fox of the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office.

The man was near the school on his knees, naked, with blood all over his legs, Fox said.

“He mutilated his genitals with his bare hands,” Fox said. “He was doing a lot of yelling and screaming.”

Police subdued the man and took him to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, where he remains in stable condition.

When the man was well enough to be interviewed, he told police he was in the Ypsilanti area visiting friends and had taken hallucinogenic, or “magic,” mushrooms.

He didn’t remember much after that, according to police.

An initial toxicology report has been performed, but it didn’t turn anything up. More extensive toxicology testing is being done.

Police will seek burglary charges against the man.
