Naked man on PCP tasered 4 times

Newburgh police say it took four officers and four jolts from a Taser to subdue a man found running naked through city traffic, high on the hallucinogen PCP.

They began getting reports about a man running around in nothing but sneakers at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Officers first spotted vehicles swerving, and then the man. When they told him to hit the ground, he came at them, yelling and refusing to stop. When one of the officers unholstered a Taser, the man kept coming, shouted "Give it to me'' and was hit with the first jolt. Police say he fell, jumped back up and starting trying to yank out the Taser darts.

He was shocked again, struggled with officers trying to handcuff him and was shocked twice more.

The man, whose name was not released, was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

[Thanks Jesse1!]
