A naked man is accused of assaulting a Thurston County Sheriff’s deputy after the deputy responded to a report of a disturbance among a group of intoxicated males in the 2600 block of Wilderness Drive Tuesday night.

One of the men was threatening another, refusing to leave, and “ripped his own clothes off,” a news release states.

When deputies arrived, the suspect charged a sheriff’s patrol car, and when the deputy exited the vehicle, the suspect charged him, and “a struggle ensued.”

The suspect was subdued after deputies shot him with a taser multiple times. A deputy suffered minor injuries during the struggle.

The 28-year-old suspect was arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault on a law enforcement officer and booked into the Thurston County Jail. He has a probable cause hearing set for today.
