During a police chase last week, a Tennessee man allegedly flung his own severed penis out of his car window, claiming that voices on the radio told him to do so in order to save the world.
Tyson Gilbert, 39, was approached by police in Dowelltown after he had partially blocked the highway with his car. He fled after cops flashed their lights to pull him over.
According to Newsweek, the chase involved multiple police departments and two branches of the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
During the chase, he threw his own dick out the window of his Honda Accord, much like a banana on a Mario Kart track.
“Gilbert opened the door to his vehicle, where the trooper observed Gilbert was bleeding from an alleged self-inflicted wound. Gilbert shut the vehicle’s door and sped away,” according to a Tennessee Highway Patrol preliminary report.
“When I pulled up behind him and turned my lights on he took off and refused to stop. He was all over the road the whole time,” Bobby Johnson of the Tennessee Highway Patrol told Tennessee news station WJLE. “He turned off on Old Liberty Road and came to a stop. He opened his door. He was naked and covered in blood. He then shut his door and kept driving.”
Because of HIPAA privacy laws, a THP spokesperson told Motherboard that they couldn’t confirm the condition of the man’s penis or whether anyone found it on the road and took it to the hospital for him.
Police attempted to stop him with two sets of tire spikes, but he drove through both and kept going, eventually running on just rims. The chase lasted nearly 30 miles until Gilbert was cornered by police. He requested medical attention and was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
