    A man was taken to a Brooklyn hospital after biting his own penis. Police are wondering why he left home to do it.

    A convicted sex offender from Brooklyn took a bite out of crime and a bite out of himself too, police said.

    Damiene Iriarte was found naked and bleeding behind a building in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn after having bitten the tip off his own penis, police told a local newspaper.

    It goes without saying that he was subsequently hospitalized.

    "How he did it? Limber, I guess. Not the work of a sane mind," a police official told The Daily News.

    You think?

    Iriarte, 26, pleaded guilty in Suffolk County in 2004 to two misdemeanors after being accused the previous year of raping a 13-year-old girl, according to the News.

    It's not clear why Iriarte bit his own penis, but investigators might be just as confused -- or impressed -- that he did it at all.

    He's recovering at Brooklyn Hospital Center, representatives of which have not returned calls seeking comment.
