Acid-tripping man claims to be God, asks cops to cut off his penis
UPI ^ | April 26, 2013 at 12:15 PM | By KRISTEN BUTLER

Posted on 04/27/2013 9:40:58 AM PDT by haffast

University of Florida student Michael Joseph Silecchia was wandering around campus apartments when Gainesville police responded to a reports of a suspicious person.

When police arrived, Silecchia took his clothes off and said he was “God” and “straight,” according to The Independent Florida Alligator. The student told officers, “Don’t cut my penis off,” then changed his mind and said, “Cut my penis off,” according to the police report.

Officers say he also yelled that he had taken acid, the hallucinogenic drug LSD, though police haven't confirmed if Silecchia was under the influence at the time.

Silecchia was told several times to dress himself, but refused.. He tried to walk away from police and was physically restrained, prompting a struggle. Silecchia was wrestled to the ground, but rose up to punch a female officer in the head, according to the report.

Officers used a taser on Silecchia six times with "no effect," according to the report. Silecchia was later taken to Shands hospital at UF, where he police say he spat at a hospital employee.

I hate it when that happens.

Interesting. Maybe acid so scrambles the electrical impulses of pain receptors?

People on LSD can be incredibly dangerous. They can be shot and not feel it.

Another gift from the leftists. If it feels good....do it. What they don’t tell their mindless followers is”if the cops catch you, you are on your own”.

I think the drug will be “bath salts” as every person who has been arrested due to bath salts, was naked.

The dopers in Colorado the other day looked pretty stupid. Oriellys Waters asked them some serious questions about current events and they didn’t have a clue. They were in a drug induced stupor.

Yuranians? was the answer from one of the dopers when asked about Iran. Lol.

Lemme guess who they voted for.... if they could figure out how to tie their shoes and put their clothes on and make it to the polling place... and didn’t get sidetracked or lost on the way. Lol.

You'd think "G-d" would be able to make up his mind.

“To get back to the warning that I received. You may take it with however many grains of salt that you wish. That the brown acid that is circulating around us isn’t too good. It is suggested that you stay away from that. Of course it’s your own trip. So be my guest, but please be advised that there is a warning on that one, ok?”

He did punch a female officer in the head and spit at a hospital worker. Was also acting nuts over a sexual part of the body. Naked, sexual concern, super strong, attacking officer and hospital worker - spells bath salts to me.

Been there, done that. It’s not for the feint of heart.

Reminds me of that scene in Super Troopers where the cops are messing with the stoners. Very funny.

I’m still not clear on “bath salts”.

Are they actually like the stuff in jars that they sell in places like BloodBathAndBeyond or is ‘bath salts’ a name for some kind of weird street drug?

If it’s the former rather than the latter, who the hell first decided it would be a really great idea to consume them?

There are people who still play with acid? A former co-worker of mine tripped on it when he was in college, and was still having psychotic flashbacks nearly 40 years later-It takes a special kind of stupid to do LSD...

I got taken to the hospital for stitches when I was about 10.

At the same time I was there, they were bringing in a woman on acid. It took about eight people to control her. And she was screaming hysterically.

It made quite an impression on me, way back in 1972.

It’s the street name for a combination of chemicals. No connection to commericial bath salts for your tub.

What are these people doing with the bath salts-snorting it? Chasing a spoonful of it with a Bud Light? I’m guessing the label on a jar of that stuff reads “do not take internally” for a reason...

Bath salts is the street name for a combination of chemicals. Has nothing to do with your bathtub commercial bath salts.

The only reason I know is when I saw the first reporting of strange behavior (try to eat the faces of people, super strength and naked) and the taking of “bath salts” was what the person had taken, I looked it up and there it was, a combination of chemicals that had the street name of “bath salts”.

No vinyl here, but I’ve got their stuff on tapes I need to burn to CD.

I miss vinyl.

I may be a Luddite but I fought the CD switchover for years.

Nothing sounds as rich and full as vinyl on a good turntable.

[But now I’ve got like 9000+ songs on my iPods. Oh well.]

as for LSD I keep thinking of this episode of Dragnet they showed us in high school on why we shouldn’t take it. the episode with Blue boy.

Ack!

When I was about 9 or 10, my school teacher aunt gave me “Go Ask Alice” to read.

Nightmares, psychological trauma and lifelong phobias notwithstanding, it certainly kept me clean.

My HS showed us gory driver’s ed movies but never drugs.

Maybe because they weren’t much of a problem in hillbilly world.
