Lt. Tory Jacobson said police responded to a report of a drunk naked man in the parking lot at about 9:40 a.m. Thursday.

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 ambulance to the emergency room at Sanford Medical Center.

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

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