Man cuts off penis and throws it out car window during police chase
A 39-year-old Tennessee man has been arrested after a bizarre police chase. The man cut off his penis on the way and threw it out the window.
The police chase began shortly after the man was parked on the highway and traffic stopped. When he realized that the police were coming after him, he quickly drove away.
“When I pulled up behind him and turned on my lights, he took off and refused to stop,” police officer Bobby Johnson told local news channel WJLE. “He turned off on Old Liberty Road and came to a stop there. He then opened his door. He was naked and covered in blood. Then he closed his door again and drove away.”
The chase went through two provinces and at one point the man cut off his genitals. It was only after a while that the police managed to get hold of him. The man was taken into custody and then taken to hospital.
Police say the man said he cut off his penis because he heard voices on the radio telling him to do it to save the world.
The police are still investigating the matter. The man also reportedly had other warrants for his arrest for unknown offences.
