JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Did a carjack suspect bite off more than he can chew?

A Jersey City man police 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, 29, is charged with carjacking, throwing bodily fluids at law enforcement officers and being under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance, the Jersey Journal reported.

Jargget stripped naked in a Jersey City intersection on Sunday night and tried to forcibly remove a driver from a car, police said.

He was twice brought to Jersey City Medical Center for evaluation before biting off and swallowing a finger at the jail, police said.
