According to a Thursday update, the man who lit himself on fire near the White House Wednesday might have been high on a hard dissociative drug originally designed to be used as anesthesia.

“D.C. law enforcement sources tell TMZ … cops believe Gupta was high on a drug called K2, which was laced with PCP,” TMZ said. “We’re told responding officers saw signs Gupta was hallucinating — he also did not respond to their commands to roll over as they tried to extinguish him.”

Arnav Gupta, 33, of Bethesda, Maryland set himself on fire in Ellipse Park Wednesday. Dramatic video footage showed the engulfed man calmly walking in the park as he burned. Gupta had previously been reported missing, and authorities said that they were “concerned for Gupta’s physical and emotional welfare.”

“K2 is a synthetic THC, composed almost entirely of chemicals, which is banned in the U.S.,” TMZ said. “There have been widespread incidents of people getting violent and delusional on K2.”

Whether there was a political motive behind Gupta’s fiery display remains unknown to authorities.

TMZ said there was a “suspicious package” burning near Gupta which was subsequently extinguished. The contents of the package remain unidentified.

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.

Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.

President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
