JERSEY CITY (PIX11)—A Jersey City man is under a psychiatric evaluation after he stripped naked, defecated in a police cruiser and bit off his own finger before swallowing it.
According to authorities, a completely naked Jargget Washington was found pounding the windows of passing cars at the intersection of Communipaw and West Side avenues Sunday night.
At one point, the 29-year-old attempted to pull a driver out of his car, but the driver managed to fight him off.
Responding officers arrested the disturbed man who was believed to be under the influence of PCP, and took him Jersey City Medical Center.
During the span of 3 separate trips to the hospital, Washington chewed on his wrists to escape handcuffs, defecated in the back seat of a police cruiser and later when he was in a holding cell, bit off one of his fingers and swallowed it.
Washington remains hospitalized Tuesday.
