Trumansburg, N.Y. — A 21-year-old man has been accused of selling hallucinogenic mushrooms to festival-goers at GrassRoots 2014, according to Trumansburg Police.

Zachary Bergen, 21, was chased down by GrassRoots security officials and arrested Friday around 10:42 p.m.

Bergen is from Williamson, N.Y. Police said he was brought down as he tried going through the main gate of the festival. He was then arrested.

Bergen has been charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor. The charges may “very well be upgraded to a felony once the lab reports are complete,” Trumansburg police said in a statement.

Bergen paid $200 in bail.
