That was former SAC Capital trader Noah Freeman.

As he did earlier in his testimony, Mr. Freeman again testified about his drug use, in particular a bad experience with hallucinogenic mushrooms in San Francisco. Mr. Freeman, who had previously testified to smoking marijuana for about a decade prior to quitting in 2009, said he took hallucinogenic mushrooms once while on a business trip. "It was one of the worst experiences of my life," said Mr. Freeman, who acknowledged that he was found running around San Francisco in his underwear after taking the mushrooms.

Former SAC Capital portfolio managers and best buds, fired from SAC for performance and later confronted by the Feds, who divided and conquered the duo by convincing Freeman to record his conversations with Longueuil, which didn't come of much until Noah got Don to give a step-by-step guide to destroying evidence of wrongdoing? Longueuil is set to be released from prison in December and Freeman, who once ran around San Francisco in his underwear while tripping on 'shrooms and shouting "I said buy, motherfucker" at no in particular, is awaiting sentencing. But before they put all this behind them and move on with their lives (Don is taking a three-week honeymoon in January; Noah has hundreds more cities to traipse through half-naked), how about one last trip down memory lane? This one is courtesy of Vanity Fair from a larger article about D&N's boss, and involves the kind of cover for their illegal activities that'd make Ping Jiang curse the fact that their time at SAC didn't overlap.
