Angels, we have heard they’re high - A heavy metal musi­cian in Cal­i­for­nia called cops to report that he’d seen a man with an assault weapon unbe­knownst to him…it was his reflec­tion in the mir­ror!  Justin God­frey phoned 911 to con­fess that he was “the angel of death” and that he had a loaded weapon to prove it. He also men­tioned being high on psy­che­delic mush­rooms and asked for a ride — although he admit­ted he wasn’t sure where he wanted to go.  Cops described God­frey as “com­pli­ant” when they arrived and arrested him with­out inci­dent — and noted they had a nice “con­ver­sa­tion that cen­tered on the end of the world and what things are going to transpire.”
