A man died after eating his smashed up computer as police officers were trying to arrest him, police in Russia said.
St. Petersburg Police said that the suspect died after eating parts of his smashed up tablet computer to avoid being taken into custody.
Police arrived at the man’s apartment around 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, after neighbors complained about a man throwing objects out of his window.
As the officers tried to place the 41-year-old unidentified man in handcuffs, he began to behave strangely by eating pieces of glass and his computer to avoid arrest.
An officer was injured while trying to stop the man from eating his tablet. An ambulance was called to the scene, but the suspect died before help arrived.
Police did not reveal why they attempted to arrest the man.
