I contemplated putting this in Douchebag of the Week, but really, this is more shoutout worthy...

From the Chicago Tribune...

Lamont Cathey was a promising Chicago basketball prospect, a dominating 6-8 center who had the potential to play at a Division II college until he was arrested and charged in the theft of money from a pizzeria safe more than a year ago.

Unable to post a $5,000 cash bond, the West Englewood 17-year-old languished in Cook County Jail as legal wrangling over his low-level burglary charge dragged on. Eventually, after months stuck in limbo when a plea deal fell through, something inside the teen cracked. He began to swallow anything he could get his hands on in his cell — screws, needles, a thumbtack, a 4-inch piece of metal, even strips of leather from restraints, according to jail officials.

At one point, Cathey had swallowed so much metal that doctors couldn't tell which items were newly ingested. He destroyed a $50,000 hospital bed, a camera in his jail hospital room and even dismantled a medical device so he could swallow a metal piece inside, officials said.

According to jail officials, at least $1 million has been spent so far on Cathey's medical care — more than any other inmate in recent history — as he has been hospitalized two dozen times in the nearly 16 months since his arrest and had multiple operations to remove objects from his digestive tract. Adding to the expense, jail officials said they have been forced to post a 24-hour guard outside Cathey's cell to prevent him from harming himself further.

"He's literally eating the jail," the jail's executive director, Cara Smith, said in an interview.

He is probably going to clog up a toilet something fierce very soon.

No wonder health care costs are astronomical.
