A Manchester man was arrested after he allegedly took psychedelic mushrooms and hit a woman at a home in Coventry early Monday morning.
Officers were called to a home on Ripley Hill Road for an alleged assault around 5 a.m.
During their investigation, police discovered James Norris, 32, was visiting a female acquaintance after having eaten an unknown amount of psychedelic mushrooms.
