Imagine you're a cop. A naked man is running along the pavement, wearing just a pair of goggles and his birthday suit. You ask him to stop. He doesn't. Do you taser
him? Sure, you do!
Zak Anthony King, an 18-year-old, part-time nudist, received the nasty end of everyone's favorite neuro-muscular-incapacitation gun
, taking the zap while he was running down Hollywood Boulevard in West Melbourne, Fla.
There were cameras on the cops' helmets to catch the event in action, the footage of which you can see below.
King has now been temporarily jailed for resisting arrest without violence and for indecent exposure.
Of course, this is far from the first Taser-based blunder we've seen. There's the cop trying to Taser a bull
, the Phillies fan who got shocked on-field
, the policewoman who felt the voltage from a colleague
and the original classic, "Don't tase me bro
But why was he running down the road naked, anyway? It might have something to do with him telling police the day before that he had "superpowers." Really. True story.
