Fifth points for courage and wanting to save a dog. Minus fifty for mixing LSD with DXM, and another minus fifty for not taking basic psychedelic precautions like having a sober friend around.

Troopers: Man mixing LSD and cough syrup saves dog from imaginary fire (WNYT NewsChannel 13)

HALFMOON -- A Halfmoon man allegedly broke into his neighbor's house to save the family dog from a fire, Thursday night. However, there was no fire. Troopers say he was on LSD and hallucinating.

Troopers say 43-year-old Michael Orchard of Inglewood Drive told them he mixed LSD with cough medicine Thursday afternoon and they found him, standing heroically with a dog in his arms outside of what he thought was a giant inferno.

"He believed that the residence was on fire and he was rescuing the dog," said Trooper Mark Cepiel, Troop G Spokesperson.
