By Associated Press MODESTO, Calif. (AP) - Police say a man tried to cut off his own arm at a restaurant in Modesto, Calif., because he thought he had injected air into a vein while shooting cocaine and feared he would die unless he took drastic action.

Authorities say 33-year-old Michael Lasiter rushed into the Denny's restaurant late Friday and started stabbing himself in one arm with a butter knife he grabbed from a table.

They say that when that knife didn't work Lasiter took a butcher knife from the kitchen and dug it into his arm.

Police Sgt. Brian Findlen says Lasiter told officers he thought he needed to amputate his arm to keep himself from dying from the cocaine injection.

Lasiter was taken to a hospital for treatment of severe cuts.

The Denny's closed for the night.

After shooting cocaine I always want a Grand Slam breakfast.

He probably wouldn't have finished anyway.

On a sadder note, a childhood friend of mine overdosed on heroin on Friday night. She'd been clean for over a year. She was brain dead over the weekend, and stopped breathing Sunday night. So seriously. Pot's one thing, but stick to the stuff that's not lethal.

Thanks. I don't know that it's completely hit me. I don't think I'd seen her since she started that ****. I saw her a while ago, and was kind of uncomfortable like there was something going on I didn't like, but I'm not sure. Our mom's still keep in touch. I feel horrible for her family, most of all. I think everyone thought that the worst was over. She was back in college (maybe even grad school) and doing really well. Some things you just don't mess with.
