SANTA ANA, Calif., Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Police in Santa Ana, Calif., say they were forced to use a stun gun on a naked male driver after he allegedly refused to put his hands up after a crash.
Santa Ana police said patrol officers stopped 22-year-old Jorge Aguirre on suspicion of fleeing the scene of a traffic accident Wednesday and the man allegedly refused to respond to officers' repeated requests to put his hands in the air, The Orange County (Calif.) Register said.
Police Cmdr. Larry Coleman alleged the man was also suspiciously moving about inside the vehicle as the officers made their demands.
That was when one of the officers used a Taser on the man, only to open the vehicle's door and learn Aguirre was completely naked.
Coleman said the incident began after another driver flagged down the officers' patrol car to report a van leaving the scene of an accident.
Aguirre was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. Coleman offered no reason why the man was naked, but told the Register Aguirre's movements were likely an attempt to locate his clothes.
