ELIZABETH - The man who became known online as Kai, the hatchet-wielding hitchhiker, is recovering from self-inflicted wounds. News 12 New Jersey's John Klekamp first reported the incident.

Caleb McGillivary was rushed from the Union County jail to a hospital with self-inflicted, non-life threatening injuries yesterday.

McGillivary is held on $3 million bail, charged in the May 12 beating of 73-year-old lawyer Joseph Galfy Jr. of Clark.

McGillivary gained a measure of online fame in February after intervening in an attack on a California utility worker in which he described using a hatchet to fend off a further attack.
