A New York man has been arrested after he was found with fake drugs at Bonnaroo.

Officials in Coffee County said they took 45-year-old David E. Brady into custody on Wednesday after they saw him sitting under a tent with what appeared to be narcotics.

Reports stated Brady tossed them behind him when he saw authorities. He then stood up, and officials said he allegedly had a bag of mushrooms hanging from his waistband.

Brady was searched, and an arrest warrant stated officials found 37 pills made to look as if they were molly, 22 bags of fake mushrooms, approximately 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 allegedly told authorities he was doing God’s work by selling fake drugs. He was charged with two counts of counterfeit controlled substances.

Officials later learned Brady was also wanted in Franklin County, Arkansas on a felony bench warrant.

Arkansas was set to extradite Brady, who has also been charged with being a fugitive from justice.

Brady was being held on a $120,000 bond. He has been scheduled to appear in Coffee County court on August 11.
