Police Use Stun Gun To Subdue Naked Man
CHICAGO (STMW) — A naked man who was apparently high on drugs when he jumped on and shattered the window of a Mercedes on the Near West had to be subdued with a stun gun by police Friday night.
Sam Schauer, 22, of Auburndale, Mass., was charged with reckless conduct, reckless damage to property, aggravated assault, public indecency and four counts of resisting an officer, all misdemeanors, police said.
Officer responded to the 1400 block of West Randolph Street about 8:10 p.m., after people called 911 to complain about a naked man jumping on cars, police said.
They found the 22-year-old still naked, sitting in a puddle of water, police said. The owner of a nearby 2008 Mercedes said the man had shattered the front windshield of the vehicle.
The man allegedly became combative with police trying to arrest him, and officers used a stun gun, police said.
He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital for treatment, police said. No one else was hurt.
The man may have been under the influence of narcotics, police said.
The arrest happened a block from Union Park, where the North Coast Music Festival is taking place this weekend.
Schauer is expected Sept. 27 in court.
