Footage shows man chewing off his own fingertips in attempt not to be identified by police Newsdesk Newsdesk

A man who was arrested for driving a stolen car tried to avoid being identified by apparently chewing off the top of his fingertips.

Florida man Kenzo Roberts (20) was captured on surveillance video in the back of the patrol car, apparently chewing his fingers and swallowing.

The video is taken just minutes after Mr Roberts was stopped for driving a stolen Mercedes.

He was also reported to have had a fake ID card, three fake credit cards and a concealed firearm, WPTV reported.

Despite Roberts’ attempted mutilation, fingertip scanners quickly identified the suspect.

He was also wanted at the time for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The US border patrol also said that Roberts was in the country illegally.
