A New Jersey man possibly high on PCP hit the trifecta of freakish rampages over the weekend when he stripped his clothes, defecated in the back of a police cruiser, and gnawed off his own finger.

Authorities say they found Jargget Washington, 29, nude and belligerent at a Jersey City intersection around 8:00 p.m. on Sunday night. He allegedly "tried pulling a driver out of a car," but the driver managed to fight back, according to the New York Daily News.

Police restrained Washington and transferred him to Jersey City Medical Center, where he became increasingly uncontrollable. Washington reportedly spat at officers and chewed on his own wrists, devouring his medical bracelet.

Following the evaluation, Washington -- still dressed in a hospital gown -- reportedly defecated in the back seat of a police car as authorities transported him to the Hudson County Jail, the Jersey Journal reports.

Once at the jail, Washington chewed off his own finger and swallowed it, according to CBS New York.

Washington's questionable snack prompted authorities to return him to the Jersey City Medical Center for re-evaluation.

Police suspect that Washington may have taken PCP, short for phencyclidine.

New Jersey records show that police arrested Washington twice between 2007 and 2009 on charges surrounding conspiracy to distribute drugs on school property.

Washington is charged with carjacking, throwing bodily fluids at law enforcement officers and being under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance.
