A Georgia couple wandered naked in the road in search of their dachshund after giving the pooch a dose of LSD in a gummy worm, authorities say.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

The dog ran into the street, was hit by a car and later died.

A police report on The Smoking Gun website says officers were called to a home on Pinehurst Road on Sunday night after reports of a man and a woman running nude on a street. When the officers knocked on the door, they were greeted by a nude man and a woman naked from the waist up in a very agitated state, the report says.

The reason for the agitation: They were upset that their dog, Oscar, was missing. They told officers that they had taken acid, smoked marijuana and drunk alcoholic beverages — and had given the dachshund LSD, the report says.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that police said the LSD was in a gummy worm.

The police report says that the couple were sent to a hospital for treatment, and while officers were still on the scene, the man's mother and brother arrived with Oscar, which had been hit by a car. The mother and brother wound up being bit by the injured dog and required treatment at a hospital.

Oscar was turned over to an animal control officer. The Journal-Constitution said the man's family asked that the dog be taken to a private veterinarian, but The Smoking Gun reported that Oscar died.

Snellville police told the newspaper that Nicholas Modrich and Jamie Hughes would face drug charges and might face animal cruelty charges.
