Stabbing suspect spat his own faeces at police during arrest
A suspect in the case of a violent stabbing spat his own faeces at police during his arrest.
The Texan was arrested by police last Wednesday after he allegedly stabbed a man numerous times, leaving him in critical condition in hospital.
Jonathon Glenn (29) was picked up by police on Wednesday morning after the incident the previous night.
The 29-year-old was arrested after being tracked to a house in Houston by police investigating the serious attack.
He ran from the house and police pursued him and eventually arrested him a short distance away. Events took a bizarre turn, however, after police put the suspect into the back of the police car.
Police say Glenn defecated in the back seat of the car, collected the feces in his mouth and spit it back out at officers.
He then placed a seat belt around his throat, reportedly in an attempt to choke himself, ABC13 reported. Officers quickly cut the seat belt away from Glenn's neck and took him to jail.
According to the Galveston Police Department he is now being held on $100,000 bond and is to be charged with aggravated assault. He was also sought in connection with a kidnapping.
His victim is in serious condition in hospital with severe stab wounds, police said.
