A man arrested in La Crosse, Wisconsin told police that he had taken "tons and tons and tons and tons of acid."

That's according to WQOW in Wisconsin, which reports that 29-year-old Benjamin Snapp was caught running naked through a hotel parking lot, "yelling incoherently."

When he was quizzed by police and asked if he was on drugs, he replied "a lot of drugs," then said there wasn't anything wrong with being on drugs, before saying he'd taken LSD and "tons and tons and tons and tons of acid," which is also LSD.

La Crosse Police said the incident happened in the 1800 block of Rose Street on Saturday, June 29.

He was taken to the La Crosse County Jail, where he was charged with disorderly conduct, and lewd and lascivious behavior.

LSD, or acid, is a powerful "classic" hallucinogenic drug that can produce images and sensations that seem really although they are not, per the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

It's made from lysergic acid, which is found in a fungus that grows on rye and other grains.
