Naked man in supermarket
Cops used a stun gun to stop him walking around in Walmart wearing only a pair of stolen socks
A 6-foot-4, 300 pound, naked man was stunned with a Taser after being caught stealing socks from Walmart, Pennsylvania police say.
The Toronto Sun reports that West Whiteland Township Police said officers were called around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday after a man was spotted in the store wearing only a pair of socks, TV station My Fox Philly reported.
Surveillance footage aired by a local ABC affiliate showed a man walk from his vehicle into the store, where he removed his clothes.
He then walked around the store, broke open a package of socks and put them on, before continuing to move around the store.
When cops arrived, the suspect spat on the face of one officer.
Officers had to use stun guns to subdue him.
Verdon Lamont Taylor, 32, was arraigned on charges of indecent exposure, aggravated assault, simple assault, retail theft, receiving stolen property and disorderly conduct.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Taylor has a lengthy history of summary convictions for offences such as disorderly conduct.
Police said he was remanded to Chester County Prison after failing to post $50,000 cash bail.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 21.
