Heidi Klum’s ex boyfriend was arrested for possession of psychedelic mushrooms at the Burning Man festival just three weeks before the supermodel broke up with him, court documents reveal.
Vito Schnabel was arrested September 3 by Pershing County Sheriff’s, according to the documents, which were obtained by TMZ.
The 31-year-old was charged with felony distribution and manufacture of a controlled substance.
The arrest report says Schnabel was in possession of Psilocybin, which is the scientific name for psychedelic mushrooms.
Psilocybin is a Schedule 1 controlled substance.
Though he pleaded not guilty, the artist faces up to five years in prison if he is convicted.
This wasn’t Schnabel’s first trip to burning man – he and Heidi visited last year before their split.
The couple broke up on Monday after a thee-year relationship. It’s not clear what caused the split.

Heidi confirmed the split in an interview with People after DailyMail.com reported in mid September that the two were ‘taking time apart.’
The 44-year-old said: ‘I believe that it is important to take time to pause and reflect.’
Heidi and Vito have not been photographed together since August 20, and when Klum has had a red-carpet event this month, she has done it solo.
A source told DailyMail.com on September 13 that there was ‘trouble in paradise.’
Indeed she went to the Emmys alone and she has attended several other events, such as this weekend’s iHeart Radio event, without a plus one.
‘They haven’t been pictured together at all recently, and Heidi stayed in a hotel during her recent trip to New York,’ said the source of Klum’s early September trip to Manhattan.

The mother-of-four arrived in Manhattan on September 7 and headed to a hotel, rather than staying with her long-term love at his property in the city.
And when the star attended the Harper’s Bazaar Icons event in NYC the next day, she was not with Vito, who is the son of artist Julian Schnabel.
‘Heidi’s been spending lots of time partying with her friends,’ the source told DailyMail.com.
‘She was also seen with Lewis Hamilton at the the Harper’s Bazaar event. Friends are wondering if this could possibly be the end?’

In early September, Heidi was by her ex-husband Seal’s side as she threw a big birthday party for one of her sons.
Heidi and Vito were last seen holding hands in NYC on August 20.
In June, eyebrows were raised when he was pictured kissing a mystery brunette.
Vito was spotted in an embrace with the woman in the early hours in London. This comes while Klum was in New York filming new episodes of America’s Next Top Model.
Vito sent a statement to People which read: ‘The claims that have been made are a misinterpretation of an entirely innocent situation.
‘There is nothing more to this than I was simply saying goodnight to a family friend and we went on our separate ways.’
Vito was spotted leaving popular eatery Chiltern Firehouse with the unknown female, around 3.30am.
The brunette appeared enamored with Vito, and the couple reportedly kissed for around 30 seconds before jumping into a black cab and continuing their passionate display.
According to reports, Vito then left the taxi and entered his hotel alone, while she continued to another address.
