During a confrontation with police, 19-year-old University of Florida student Michael Silecchia begged the officers not to cut his penis off. Then he seemingly had an abrupt change of mind and started asking police to in fact go ahead and cut his manhood off.
We should probably mention that he was stark naked at the time and tripping on LSD.
According to The Florida Independent Alligator, Gainesville Police were called in the early hours of Saturday morning to a student apartment complex near campus. Silecchia was disturbing his neighbors by running through the halls.
When officers arrive the student decided to strip naked and also informed police that he was both “God” and “straight.”
He then asked police not to cut his penis off, before asking them to do so. When you’re already tripping your balls off, that sort of logic kind of makes sense.
Police tried to subdue Silecchia but he turned and struck a female officer in the head.
Eventually the student was Tasered six times, hand-cuffed, and taken to a university hospital. At the hospital he also allegedly spit in an employees face. After a three-day stay, he was booked into jail on charges of battery on an officer and resisting arrest.
