Chicago, Illinois (SafeCITY) - Stewart Gibbs, a 44-year-old Illinois man was jailed after police found him naked, covered in blood and attempting to perform an operation on his pet Doberman.

According to Chicago police, the bizarre situation came to light when Gibb's landlord began receiving complaints from other tenants who said water was leaking to their apartments through the ceiling.

The landlord knocked on Gibb's door, but didn't get a response. When the landlord decided to enter the apartment, Gibbs reportedly ran toward him naked and covered with blood.

The landlord called police after also noticing a blood soaked towel inside the apartment.

When officers arrived at Gibb's apartment, they were met at the door by Gibbs who appeared highly intoxicated and whose hands were covered with blood.

When officers entered the residence, they found a Doberman with a large wound under its right ear. Blood spatter was also found on the floor and walls inside the apartment.

Gibbs reportedly explained to officers that he had been using a butcher's knife to remove a cyst from the dog's head. He went on to say that he had been out drinking that night and continued to drink when he got home prior to performing the surgery.

Gibbs, who told police that he was a cardiologist, created the water leak when he filled a bathtub to clean the dog.

He was booked into jail on a felony charge of cruelty to animals. Bail in his case has been set at $75,000.
