Michael Joseph Silecchia faces numerous charges in Gainesville.


A University of Florida student was arrested after wandering around naked and telling arresting officers to cut off his penis, according to reports.

Gainesville.com reported last week that Michael Joseph Silecchia was wandering around and removing some of his clothing in the early-morning hours of April 20 near an on-campus apartment complex.

Silecchia, 19, continued taking off his clothes when officers arrived, then told them he'd done LSD, Gainesville.com reported.

After a struggle with officers, Silecchia punched one of them in the head, prompting one to use a Taser on him six times, according to Gainesville.com.

At one point, the student told officers not to cut off his penis, then told them to do so, the Gainesville.com report said.

And once he was taken to a facility for treatment, Silecchia spit on those trying to help him.

He now faces several charges.
