Collegian, 21, Is Rescued Off Mountain After Getting High On Mushrooms, Stripping Off Her Clothes
The Smoking Gun ^ | 5-20-2013 | TSG

Meet Taylor Powers.

The college student, 21, had to be rescued yesterday afternoon off a Colorado mountain after she ingested mushrooms, stripped off her clothes, and scuffled with two classmates with whom she had been hiking.

After receiving a 911 call that a female hiker was “high on mushrooms and in distress,” Boulder County Sheriff’s Office deputies and other assorted rescue personnel (35 in total) responded to Chautauqua Park.

Powers, seen above, was located by a park ranger who discovered that the University of Colorado undergrad had “removed all of her clothing and was being restrained” by two male companions. Rescuers had to handcuff the unruly Powers, who struggled as she was placed in a rescue basket.

Cited for unlawful consumption of a controlled substance, Powers was transported to a Boulder hospital, where she was treated and released last night. “Further charges are pending against others involved,” deputies reported.

Powers, a communications major, has not commented on her weekend adventure on her Facebook page (which includes hiking and skiing photos).

What I want to know is what 2 guys in their right minds “scuffle” with an attractive lady that decides to get naked?

After receiving a 911 call that a (naked, 21 year old) female hiker was “high on mushrooms and in distress,” Boulder County Sheriff’s Office deputies and other assorted rescue personnel (35 in total) responded to Chautauqua Park.

Young, naked, female, groovin', and apparently "in distress". "Here to help, ma'am!"

Just asked my daughter, who’s an EMT. “So you’re on the 911 response, and you arrive on the scene to see a naked, unruly Miss Powers, fighting and refusing aid. What would you do?”

She told me: “Taze her and drag her butt into the helo.”

I am guessing the two guys were probably more into guys....

A pretty gal....stoned and naked....would not have been an issue with me when I was younger. I would be calling reservations not rescue

35 personnel responded immediately to the top of a mountain.

Lesson learned? If you have an emergency and need help, make sure you use the words “naked coed” with 911.

How many of them were necessary and how many just wanted to see a 21 year old girl running around high and naked?

1 ... and 34 respectively.

Very lovely girl,,,, too bad she’s an idiot!

That reminds me of a girl I worked with back in college. My reaction to her was, "Why did God pack a vacuum in such a beautiful container?" I don't recall what her major was, but it sure wasn't science or math.

In reality it was 3,500 rescue workers responding, but the number was reduced to control the public backlash....

She and her parents should pay every nickel of her rescue.

My thinking also - and publish how much she was charged. Might, just might, slow down some of the other idiots.

Note to Ms. Taylor Powers: There are two constants in the known universe — hydrogen gas and human stupidity. Since you are not a gas and you are human, then you personify STUPIDITY.
