Police engaged in a high speed pursuit on Wednesday with a man who had severed his own penis and tossed it out of his car window.
Tyson Gilbert, 39, reportedly said that he heard voices on his car radio ordering him to commit the brutal act in order to save the world.
A patrolling police officer, Bobby Johnson, spotted Gilbert dangerously parked across the road in Dowelltown, Tennessee.
“When I pulled up behind him and turned my lights on he took off and refused to stop. He was all over the road the whole time. He turned off on Old Liberty Road and came to a stop," Johnson said.
The officer claims that the man was naked and covered in blood when he opened his door.
Before the officer could arrest Gilbert, he slammed his door shut and sped off down the highway,
Johnson added: “The Alexandria Police Department spiked him (put down spike strips) on Highway 70 as he was going through Alexandria. He kept traveling westbound into Wilson County.

While the spike strips didn’t stop Gilbert immediately, Johnson said they did slow him down, WJLE reports.
“The first spike strips got one of his front tires and the second got the other tire. The Wilson County Sheriff’s department tried to spike him past Watertown but missed. After that it became a slow speed pursuit with him running on his rims until we boxed him in,” added Trooper Johnson
