Michael Silecchia Takes Acid, Asks Police to Cut Off His Penis
Michael Silecchia, 19, was arrested after he allegedly assaulted a police officer in Gainesville, Florida, last Saturday at about 1 a.m.
According to Gainesville.com, Silecchia claimed to be God, stripped off his clothes and told police, “Don’t cut off my penis.” Moments later, he changed his mind and said, “Cut off my penis.”
Police had been called to Silecchia's apartment building because residents complained of him running around the halls.
Silecchia reportedly admitted to taking acid, but police could not confirm if he was on LSD, said Gainesville Police Department spokesperson Officer Ben Tobias.
According to the police report, Silecchia hit a female officer in the head and was shot with a Taser six times – which had no effect.
Silecchia was eventually subdued by police and taken to a local hospital for a medical evaluation. He was booked into jail on Monday for resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.
