WEST MELBOURNE, Fla., Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Florida police said they used a stun gun to stop an 18-year-old nude jogger who repeatedly refused to halt.

West Melbourne police said an officer responded to a report of a man running nude at about 7 a.m. Monday and spotted Zak Anthony King of Palm Bay, Fla., running along a street wearing nothing but swimming goggles, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Thursday.

The officer pulled up alongside King and repeatedly told him to stop but King did not comply, police said.

The arrest report said the officer told King he would use his stun gun if he did not stop running and King was quoted as replying, "Why would you tase me?"

However, King did not stop and the officer used the stun gun to stun King, who fell to the sidewalk.

King received treatment for minor injuries at a hospital and was given a notice to appear in court on charges of resisting arrest without violence and indecent exposure.
