A Kansas City teenager allegedly high on mushrooms was charged with fatally running over his friend and crashing into his friend’s house early Sunday.
Jacob David Mustoe, 17, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of 17-year-old Jake A. Wehmeyer, according to the Kansas City Star.
Wehmeyer was hanging out with a group of friends at his home when a fight broke out. He and Mustoe argued and billiard balls were thrown at each other, according to KHSB. The altercation moved to the front yard, and Wehmeyer was struck by a car that was allegedly driven by Mustoe. Court documents allege he was under the influence of psilocybin mushrooms. He reportedly told police he did it because he was high on the mushrooms. Mustoe also said he thought “everything would be OK” if he hit the house, according to the Kansas City Star.
He allegedly ran over his friend before crashing into the garage door. Then, he went into the home and passed out. When he woke up he found Wehmeyer under his car. He went to a neighbor’s house to get help, but soon ran back inside Wehmeyer’s house, and allegedly began running into walls, damaging them.
Mustoe is being held on $200,000.
