This guy’s bad trip could have cost him his tip.
Police say University of Florida student Michael Silecchia, 19, claimed to be on LSD Saturday when he stripped naked, asking cops not to cut his penis off. He then apparently changed his mind and requested they cut it off, the Gainesville Sun reported.
Authorities were dispatched to a Gainesville apartment complex at around 1:25 a.m. after receiving reports of a suspicious person. They say Silecchia was there ambling around, and when they approached him he started taking his clothes off.
Cops also say he told them he was God, according a police report obtained by the Independent Florida Alligator.
The alleged God-impersonator then said, “Don’t cut my penis off” before demanding, “Cut my penis off,” officers noted. He also allegedly stated he had taken LSD, but police were not able to determine whether or not this was true.
Silecchia allegedly refused to get dressed and punched an officer in the head after he tried to walk away and they tried to restrain him. According to the report, they used a stun gun on him six times, but it had no effect on him.
He was taken to a hospital where he was treated for three days, according to Dreamin’ Demon. He also allegedly spit on one of the employees when he got there.
After his release, he was booked into jail on charges of battery on a medical care provider, battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer.
