Police: Naked man fled from officers in downtown Meriden



MERIDEN — Police say they had to use stun guns Saturday morning while trying to capture a naked man wandering in the downtown area.

About 10 a.m. Saturday, police responded to South First Street for a report of a naked man climbing a tree, police said Monday.

The man was initially compliant when he was located by police, but was walking naked in broad daylight, police said.

A short time later, the man became aggressive. Two officers used their stun guns, but they had no impact, police said. The man fled from the area and was eventually found at the corner of Hanover and South First streets. An officer used his stun gun and was able to take the man into custody, police said. He wasn’t charged with any crimes as of Monday, and was sent to MidState Medical Center for evaluation. No serious injuries were reported.
