    Police: Florida fugitive chews off fingertips in bid to hide identity

    Police say a fugitive from Tampa, Florida, who didn't want to be identified by his fingerprints during a traffic stop in northeast Ohio chewed off his fingertips.

    Kirk Kelly has been jailed on felony counts of evidence tampering and obstructing official business and misdemeanor charges of falsification and resisting arrest. A message left for his attorney after business hours Friday hasn't been returned.

    Police in Tallmadge, Ohio, say Kelly and several other people were put into a cruiser without handcuffs after their vehicle was stopped last weekend and officers thought they smelled drugs.

    Police say Kelly gave false names as they tried to identify him. They say they figured out who he is after photos of his tattoos were provided by police in Florida, where he's wanted on firearms and drug charges.

    Robin, people who eat fingerprints have nothing going on in their lives.

    Rooky. Everyone knows that to avoid lineups or in court identifications, you chop your damn head off.

    Why is it, around the world, the most beautiful places are populated with some of the worst people?

    Not sure, but unless the distal part of the digits themselves are gone altogether, skin heals and fingerprints can come back with a readable pattern. Sheesh.
