JERSEY CITY - Authorities say a Jersey City man they believe was high on PCP bit off and swallowed his own finger after being arrested for allegedly trying to carjack a vehicle while naked.

Jargget Washington, of Jersey City, is charged with carjacking, throwing bodily fluids at law enforcement officers and being under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance, according to a Jersey Journal report.

Police say the 29-year-old stripped naked in a Jersey City intersection on Sunday night and tried to forcibly remove a driver from a car.

Officials say he was twice brought to Jersey City Medical Center for evaluation before biting off and swallowing a finger at the jail.
