The naked chronicles continue, but this time the story is no laughing matter.
CBS Miami has the details:
Miami police shot and killed a man on the MacArthur Causeway Saturday afternoon, and police sources told CBS4 they had no choice: the naked man they shot was trying to chew the face off another naked man, and refused to obey police orders to stop his grisly meal.
The shooting occurred shortly after 2 p.m. Police had received a 911 call indicating that two naked men were duking it out on a bike path on the causeway, which was heavy with weekend vehicular traffic.
Police ordered the “man making a meal out of the other man to stop.” When he failed to comply, officers say they had no choice but to apply deadly force.
CBS quotes Det. Willie Moreno, a Miami Police spokesperson as saying, “During this confrontation an officer did discharge his weapon striking one of the individuals.” According to the police report, the suspect died instantly.
The victim, meanwhile, was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Police sources claim the man had virtually no face and was unrecognizable. His identity and condition have not been released, nor has the identity of his cannibalistic attacker.
There has been an odd spate of stories of public nudity lately, but this case has elements of another bizarre news item reported in this space in January, when Bridgeport. Ct., police arrested a homeless man for having cannibalized a local resident on whose porch he was crashing.
