Moorhead police use Taser on naked man, found yelling, running around waving his arms around in parking lot

MOORHEAD – Police said they were forced to use a Taser on a man who was found drunk, naked, running around waving his arms and yelling in a public parking lot here Thursday morning.

Moorhead police Lt. Tory Jacobson said police responded to a report of a drunk naked man in the parking lot east of 404 Sunrise Circle at about 9:40 Thursday morning.

The area is near some apartment complexes.

Jacobson said when officers arrived, they found the man running around totally naked, yelling and waving his arms.

It was obvious the man was under the influence of some controlled substance, Jacobson said.

When officers tried to arrest the man, he became “very uncooperative,” spitting on them, said Jacobson, and one officer had to use his Taser to subdue him.

He was transported by FM Ambulance to the emergency room at Sanford Medical Center.

The man was identified as Douglas Guy, 30, of Spirit Lake, N.D.

He is facing charges of misdemeanor disorderly conduct and obstructing the legal process.
