An upstate man apparently high on Bath Salts was found on his roof with a shotgun Thursday morning.
The New York State Police responded to a home on Route 8 in Bridgewater shortly before 6 a.m.
They found a 54-year-old man on his roof with a shotgun shouting out to people to get out of his yard. There wasn't anyone in the yard at the time.
Police were able to talk the man off of his roof. He got back to the ground unharmed.
Police took the gun away from him and found it to be unloaded.
The man admitted that he had been using Bath Salts, according to police.
The man was taken to St. Luke's Hospital in Utica for a mental health evaluation and police have not filed criminal charges.
