Michael Joseph Silecchia: Nude student asked officers to cut off genitals, said he was God, cops say

A University of Florida student woke up in jail this weekend after police say he wandered around naked and asked officers to cut off his genitals.

The Gainesville Sun reports  Michael Joseph Silecchia, 19, who lives on campus, was arrested after police received reports Saturday at 1:25 a.m. of a suspicious person taking off his clothes near the Campus Club apartments.

According to the Sun , as police arrived, Silecchia began taking off his clothes and told police he had just done LSD. After a struggle with police, he was stunned with a Taser about six times with no effect, the report states.

According to the University's newspaper, The Alligator , Silecchia then told officers he was God.

He then told them,  “Don’t cut my penis off,” then changed his mind and said, “Cut my penis off," according to the report.

He was charged Monday with battery on a medical care provider, battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer.
