Alexandra Barnes, you have some competition. Alexandra, if you’ll remember, is the Florida woman who, just last week, set her car on fire, sat down in the middle of an intersection and proclaimed “I am God.”
Well, guess what? Florida man Michael Joseph Silecchia took a bunch of acid and proclaimed that he was God, too. So there might be a “God-off” in Florida soon. Over the weekend, police were summoned to the Campus Club Apartments after neighbors reported that Silecchia was running through the halls of the building in the middle of the night. At first, Silecchia pleaded with them not to cut off his penis, but then later changed his mind. “Cut off my penis,” he requested. The cops did not oblige. Silecchia also advised that he was “God” but also “straight.” Just so we’re clear.
When officers attempted to subdue him, he punched a female officer in the head. He was eventually controlled via tasering, and then charged with resisting arrest and battery on an officer or medical personnel. [Independent Florida Alligator]
