WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. -- Arkansas' naked jogger has been zapped.

For months, officers have been getting reports about a man making late-night runs in the buff. On Monday, police said they think they got their mystery jogger.

Fate Patterson, 39, of West Memphis, was arrested after he ran past a police car and failed to stop when he was ordered to do so by officers. Police chased him and were able to rein him in by using a Taser.

Patterson was charged with indecent exposure, fleeing and resisting arrest.

Mike Allen, assistant chief of the West Memphis police department, said that it did not initially appear that the man was mentally ill. He did not disclose his reasons for running without his clothes.

"You know, this one has just got me kind of speechless," said Allen.

Ouch! Since the taser darts have to stay in contact for the device to work, we'll have to assume they became embedded in flesh!

That would suck pretty bad...While in Monterey, CA, sitting outside the poolhall smoking with some friends, saw a guy get tazered twice by the police...and he was still going after them! I guess he had a knife. He gave up when another patrolman came up behind him and put him in a full nelson with his club. But it was just another night at the ph...
