    NJ man on PCP bites off own finger and swallows it after naked carjack attempt

    Man believed to be on PCP bites off own finger and swallows it after naked carjack try, authorities say

    By the end of Sunday night, Jargget Washington had tried to gnaw his own wrist off by trapped in a police holding cell, defecated in the back of a Jersey City police cruiser, and as a grand finale bit off and swallowed his own finger at the Hudson County jail, police said.

    Police said Washington, 29, of Jersey City accomplished all this while under the influence of PCP, or phencyclidine, a drug that can cause hallucinations and make users extremely violent.

    Washington first attracted police attention when he stripped naked in the middle of a busy intersection and started attacking cars with his bare hands, screaming unintelligibly.

    At one point, Washington allegedly jumped onto the hood and roof of a passing car and tried to pull the driver out, the New Jersey Journal reported. The driver fought Washington off and police arrived shortly after at 7:54 p.m.

    Upon seeing the officers, Washington reportedly crouched into a fighting stance and asked the cops to 'Come on, come on.' Washington was restrained and brought to the Jersey City Medical Center, where he was medically and psychologically cleared. But with the PCP still active in his system, Washington became belligerent and began to spit at the officers. He then ate his medical bracelet, and in an attempt to escape his handcuffs began chewing on his own wrists.

    Unable to keep Washington from attempting to hurt himself or other, officers put him in a spit hood and leg irons. He was then brought to the medical center for a second evaluation and again cleared to be processed. On the way to the jail, Washington defecated in the back of the squad car while still wearing his hospital clothes. A spokesman for the county confirmed he bit off and swallowed his finger while in jail. Washington is being treated at the medical center and officials have not commented on his condition.

    Washington has some experience with drugs. He served approximately 3 years for selling narcotics according to the Department of Corrections and was released in January.

    It'll be interesting to see what (if any) drugs are detected in his blood sample...

    A New Jersey man possibly high on PCP went on a bizarre rampage Sunday night that grew more and more outrageous and ended with him gnawing off his own finger and swallowing it, according to police.

    The absurd events began before 8 p.m., when Jersey City resident Jargget Washington, 29, allegedly stripped naked and menaced drivers in the city’s west side, the Jersey Journal reported.

    He allegedly tried pulling a driver out of a car, but was foiled when the driver fought back. Police were able to restrain Washington when they arrived and took him to Jersey City Medical Center for an evaluation.

    The Jersey Journal said Washington allegedly became combative once there, spitting at officers and eating his medical bracelet.

    He also reportedly tried to break free from his cuffs by chewing on his wrists.

    Later, as he was taken to the Hudson County Jail, he defecated in the back of a police cruiser in his hospital gown, according to authorities.

    It was at the jail where Washington chewed off one of his fingers and swallowed it, a Hudson County spokesman confirmed to the Jersey Journal.

    He was taken back to Jersey City Medical Center to be re-evaluated.

    “When (Washington) was released, the hospital felt that he wasn’t a threat to himself or others,” hospital spokesman Mark Rabson told the Jersey Journal about his initial visit.

    Police believe Washington might have been high on phencyclidine, or PCP, according to the Jersey Journal. The synthetic drug causes symptoms mirroring schizophrenia.

    Washington has previously done time for drug dealing in Hudson County and was most recently released from prison in January, according to the New Jersey Department of Corrections.

    I hope he didn't swallow the middle finger.. being the logest finger, its also the worst tasting and easy to choke on.

    That sounds like a mistake to me. If he was a danger to himself and others, why wasn't he admitted, restrained, and properly sedated? Hospital restraint beds are damn near impossible to get out of and it wouldn't take a genius to articulate the need for medical sedation in such a situation. Perhaps the man might not have bitten off his own finger if the examining practicioner recognized that a correctional facility would not provide adequate supervision and had kept him under observation.

    Then again, I can see why no party involved would want to take on custody of a crazy drug-addled, defecating, biting maniac.

    I would also be interested to see proof that he had taken PCP. How does the writer know that? Was the man suffering a psychotic episode?

    I'm assuming he tested positive at the hospital when they were 'clearing' him to be released into the police's custody. I'll try to find a different article with more details if possible, however.

    This updated version says he was 'believed' to be on PCP and he did not bite off his finger and swallow it, but gnawed at it. Amazing how LE officers or authorities know everything about drugs! Maybe it was bath salts or 'bad acid.'

    Ah...thank you for the update. The only reason I thought they were positive about it was because they were charging him with use of an illicit substance (IIRC), among other things.

    The guy sounds like he was pretty out of his mind but I was spectical when reading originally that he chewed off his finger and ate it; I guess in general it is possible to eat through human body parts like that but I find it hard to fathom that human teeth can chew through flesh and meat, ick.

    People get shot multiple times on PCP and dont even hit the floor I dont believe chewing through flesh and bone would be that difficult in that state of extreme intoxication.

    Yep. Remember rapper Big Lurch, who ripped off a woman's breast while on PCP and chewed up part of her lungs?

    I didn't know that story:

    Yeah...I actually listened to the guy's musical output once or twice before that incident...he was from Sacramento and was mentored by 'Brotha Lynch Hung', an infamous rapper from that area that rapped about cannibalism and smoking 'sherms' (weed with pcp), among other things. They called him 'Big Lurch' because he was over 6'7", IIRC.

    Here's a picture of his only released album, "It's All Bad":
