Police received a call from someone saying Wayne Carter, 43, had a knife and was threatening to hurt himself.

Carter was in the corner of the room with a knife in his hand, and he stood up, he yelled at police while stabbing himself all over his body with a 12-inch kitchen knife.  Carter allegedly threw some of his skin and intestines at officers as they tried to enter the room.  Police sprayed two cans of pepper spray at the man that had zero effect.

Police then called SWAT to subdue Carter so he could be taken to Hackensack University Medical Center.

He remains in critical condition.  Carter has a history of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest and has been taken to the hospital for psychiatric reasons in the past.
