“Seemed kind of delirious,” the witness said.
I heard about it after I got home from the festival. It was hot, overcrowded, and no place for someone with a medical condition to be driving around all that foot traffic.... especially if they had just been walking around down there, alcohol imbibed or not.
It was drugs. Of COURSE it was drugs.
