Guy cuts of woman's pinky to drink blood. Woman ok with this....
GREEN BAY - A man suspected of making a video recording of another man chopping off a woman’s finger and drinking her blood has been charged in connection with the incident.

Preston Hyde, 23, of Green Bay, has been held in the Brown County Jail on a probation violation since Aug. 27, when his friend, Jonathon C. Schrap, cut off the woman's pinky finger and downed a shot glass of blood drained from a cut he made in a woman’s arm at Schrap’s Suamico home.

The woman, 27, told police she allowed Schrap to chop off her pinky finger, which he put it in the freezer while claiming he planned to eat it.

Hyde is accused of recording the incident on his cellphone and posting the video to YouTube.

The complaint states Schrap first cut the woman’s arm, filled a shot glass with her blood and drank it. When he suggested cutting off someone’s finger and eating it later, the woman volunteered. The act took two whacks with a machete, and the woman bled so badly Schrap and others tried to cauterize the wound, first with a cigarette lighter and then with a blowtorch.

The woman’s friends ended up driving her to the hospital because she was showing signs of going into shock from the injuries. Hospital staff reported it to police, saying it appeared to be some kind of initiation rite, prosecutors said.

The woman identified Schrap and Hyde as being associated with the Juggalos, a nickname given to fans of the Insane Clown Posse, but, she said, they were “even crazier.”

She told investigators she didn’t want anyone charged with a crime because she voluntarily let them hurt her.  The woman had recently been released from a mental health center after a 90-day hold, the complaint says.

Schrap is scheduled for sentencing Friday. He pleaded no contest to second-degree reckless injury. As part of a plea agreement, a charge of mayhem will be dismissed.

Hyde is facing charges of being party to both of those crimes.

Public defender Jeff Cano told Brown County Court Commissioner Paul Burke that he had doubts Hyde truly understood the charges against him, as Hyde rocked back and forth in his chair through the entire hearing Wednesday,

Burke set a $5,000 cash bond and said Hyde’s mental health status could be reviewed March 1 at the balance of his initial appearance.
