Man cuts penis off and throws it out car window

A man cut off his penis and threw it out the window of his car as he was being chased by police. Tyson Gilbert, 39, allegedly claimed that voices on the radio told him that doing so would save the world.

Gilbert, of Cookeville, Tennessee, took police officers on a chase through two counties of the state on Wednesday morning, the Daily Mail reported.

State highway patrolman Bobby Johnson was the first to spot Gilbert driving naked and covered in blood after he severed his penis. Gilbert fled when approached by Johnson.

‘When I pulled up behind him and turned my lights on he took off and refused to stop,’ said Johnson. ‘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.’

‘The first spike strips got one of his front tires and the second got the other tire,’ Johnson said. ‘After that it became a slow speed pursuit with him running on his rims until we boxed him in.’

Alexandria police officers eventually cornered Gilbert’s car on the highway before he got to Interstate 40 by putting spikes on the road.

Cops took him into custody and he was admitted at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Police said Gilbert heard voices on the radio of his Honda Accord that told him to harm himself to ‘save the world’.

It was not immediately known if his penis was retrieved to be reattached.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Gilbert has a criminal record. He was arrested in 2020 for trying to steal four rental cars in Cookeville, including a 2020 Audi A5, a 2020 Audi Q3, a 2020 Nissan Rogue and a 2019 Chevy Malibu, according to the rental manager Shawn Nixon.

He was charged with three counts of attempted theft of property, resisting arrest and attempted theft of services.

He was booked into a jail and had a bond of $61,000.
