Edward Dorsey, a 54-year-old man has shocked people after removing his eyeball and throwing at doctors.


The man has however been charged with domestic violence.

Accoring to The Smoking Gun, shocked personnel at the medical unit were horrified when the man reached up and plucked out his own eye and hurled it at them. Thankfully, it turned out to be a false one, but it did lead to some being somewhat distressed at the performance.

The site said it happened in Florida and the man is now in police custody.An arrest report said he removed his glass eye and threw it at hospital personnel.

Edward Dorsey, 54, was first arrested on Sunday morning on a domestic violence charge for allegedly striking his wife during an 8am row at their home in Largo.

That was seen as a misdemeanour and it was Dorsey who was transported to the Largo Medical Center for treatment.

However, things are said to have turned somewhat bizarre once he arrived.

It is claimed that while in the emergency room, Dorsey “removed his glass eye” and then “threw his glass eye at the ER doctor and ER nurse”. That is according to a report written up by the Largo Police Department.

The officer wrote that before flinging the fake eye, Dorsey was instructed by hospital personnel and an officer on the scene “to not take the eye out in the first place”.

Dorsey ignored those commands, an arrest affidavit charges, and declared he told them: “I can do whatever I feel like doing.”

The airborne eye does not appear to have caused any injuries, though it is unclear whether the eye hit any hospital workers, the Smoking Gun said.

Jobless Dorsey was subsequently charged with battery on an emergency medical care provider and is being held in custody in lieu of a $30,000 bond payment.
