Newlyweds' Honeymoon Trip (on LSD) Ends Badly

Posted By on Wed, Aug 19, 2009 at 11:22 AM

Well, that's one way to avoid the costs of a honeymoon. Instead of jetting off to some exotic locale after their wedding, a pair of suburban St. Louis newlyweds decided to take a "trip" without leaving town.

Police report that the Crestwood couple -- married on Saturday -- took LSD yesterday and then decided to go for a hike in a nearby park in Fenton. That's where the 20-year-old bride began to have seizures from the drug.

A couple on horseback discovered the newlyweds after the husband called to tell police that his new wife had fallen and hit her head while hiking.

Later he admitted he and his wife had taken LSD. As the bride received hospital care, the groom was taken to the police station and booked for drug possession.

Hmm, wonder if the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission would endorse this as one of those "Staycation" promotions they're always advertising?
