A University of Florida student was arrested for a Saturday incident in which he was wandering around naked, making random statements about God and, first, telling people not to cut off his penis and then to cut it off, Gainesville police reported.
Michael Joseph Silecchia, 19, who lives on campus, also yelled that he had done acid — the drug LSD. He was charged Monday with battery on a medical care provider, battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer.
The incident occurred about 1:25 a.m. at the Campus Club apartments at 4000 SW 37th Blvd. Police were called about a suspicious person and found Silecchia wandering around. As police arrived he began taking off his clothes and was naked as he mumbled and made random statements, the arrest report states.
Silecchia was told several times to dress himself, but refused, the report states. He tried to walk away from police and was physically restrained, prompting a struggle with police.
Police got Silecchia to the ground, but he punched an officer in the head. He was Tased about six times with no effect, the report states.
Eventually Silecchia was taken to Shands at the University of Florida, where he spit on employees, police reported.
After his release, he was booked into jail on charges of battery on a medical care provider, battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer.source
