    A man tried to cut off his own arm in a California restaurant after becoming convinced that he had injected air into his veins. Michael Lasiter, 33, had been shooting cocaine in a motel room but believed he had accidentally got air in his bloodstream which could lead to death, police said.

    He thought cutting off his arm was the only way to save his life so he ran into a nearby Denny's restaurant and grabbed a butter knife from a customer's table.Lasiter then started using the butter knife to stab himself repeatedly in the right arm near the biceps.When that didn't work and his arm remained in place he ran into the kitchen, grabbed a butcher knife and started sawing frantically at his limb.

    Police rushed to the restaurant in the city of Modesto and tried to stop Lasiter but he carried on trying to sever his right arm in front of them.Officers eventually used a Taser stun gun to knock him down before he could detach it.

    Sergeant Brian Findlen said: "He wouldn't obey a substantial number of commands and continued to stab himself.

    I'm pretty sure that with an air embolism, if you have the ability to run to a restaurant, you have already escaped any danger. :D

    I hope he just found his personal rock bottom, and never shoots cocaine into his veins again.
