Drugs Are Funny (When it Happens to Someone Else, Like Ben Fogle)

By Gary Cutlack on at

Clean-living outdoor adventurer hunk Ben Fogle claims he was the victim of a drink-spiking attack, with something akin to an unscheduled LSD trip triggering a psychotic fit and making him try to jump out of his home's windows.

Fogle told of his awful episode on Twitter, before expanding on his bizarre drugs nightmare to the Daily Mail. He told the paper: "I just flipped and had a full on psychotic episode. I was ranting, marching up and down, hitting walls, trying to jump out of windows. My wife ran out and had to get my friends who had to restrain me."

Highlighting the facts that drugs really aren't particularly amusing in any way at all, Fogle said: "They had to lock the doors and restrain me from hurting myself. I wanted to throw myself on a glass table and through a window," before it turned even weirder when he started "trying to get into bags."

The hospital that treated Fogle didn't run any toxicology tests, so he can't be 100 per cent sure if it was a spiked drink. He has appealed to the supposed drug-lacer, saying: "I would forgive you. I just want to know what you put into my drink and into my body." [ITV]
