A presumably drunken, naked man may have bitten off a little more than he could chew recently, after receiving an unwanted scorch off of his beard and body hair just moments after the local police force decided to taser the reckless individual for his uncontrollable behaviours.
Little did the police know at the time was that the rogue had a firm grip hold onto a cigarette lighter in the palm of his hand, which quickly erupted into a fireball, burning away a patch of his body hair and a fair few inches away from his facial hair in the process when the taser hit.
Speaking with the media the Wisconsin police officers on duty that day have reportedly said 'The electricity enginted from the taser triggered the lighter fluid which sparked flames into his beard and body hair.' Although the man is believed to be shaken by the ordeal it is said that no serious injuries have occurred from this incident.
Wisconsin Police Department were first called out to tend to a 33 year old male named Travis Tingler who was believed to be highly intoxicated. Upon arrival the officers said the man was visibly aggravated by their presence, and was standing completely naked on the street in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, on Sunday evening. He was reportedly yelling and shouting at passers by proclaiming that he wanted to kill people in a nearby house.
The arresting officer said, ‘I told him he couldn’t be out in the middle of the street with no clothes on yelling like that. I asked him about any possible medical conditions he might have had. I noticed he had a dazed appearance, blank stare and he sweating profusely.'
Officers then suspected he may have been heavily impaired by the use of illegal drugs and were quick to try and place him in handcuffs in order to defuse any further hostility been shown. But the man struggled with the officers and aggressively refused to enter a police squad car. Still butt ass naked and sweating from head to toe the stun gun taser was quickly pulled and used upon the man by the officers, unknowingly striking a lighter in the man's hand.
Then in the blink of an eye the man's beard caught fire as well as a little body hair. The cops were quick to react and safely regather control of the situation at hand, but not before one of the officers received a punch to the face from the dazed troublemaker.
The drunken buffoon was taken and held in police custody, where it is believed he still remains today. His trousers were later recovered by a dog walker nearby the crime scene.
