According to The Guardian.
Earlier in the day Robinson had been out with a small group and had eaten magic mushrooms, according to a friend who was present at the time.
The friend, who had known Robinson for five years and whom the Guardian has chosen not to identify, said Robinson was inexperienced with hallucinogens and had consumed a large quantity. “He had no clue what he was in for. Realistically, he needed someone to sit him down and tell him that everything was OK,” the friend said.
Robinson returned to Willy Street at around 5pm after playing on the ice at Governor’s Island.
“He was in a place in his head that no one else in the world, in the universe could have understood but him,” said the friend, who still seemed traumatised by the events.
Irresponsible behavior has consequences. This police officer could have been seriously hurt by selfish drug user.
