Florida is a treasure trove of bizarre news stories and the latest comes from Maitland, just north of Orlando.
There's a dog, a dude, cops, nudity, hallucinogenic mushrooms and tazering - all the needed elements for a bizarre news story.
Twenty-year-old Robin Campbell decided to walk his dog Sunday afternoon, nude - both the dog and the dude.
The incident began when Maitland cops engaged him at 5:14pm Sunday.
The NY Daily News picks up the story from there:
Robin Campbell's rude, nude stroll got out of control when cops asked him why he was not wearing any clothes about 5:14 p.m. Sunday.
The naked 20 year old gave a bizarre response that left the cops scratching their heads, according to an arrest report: "This is God's house!"
"You have had some alcohol," he allegedly said, before admitting that he ate hallucinogenic mushrooms.
Lawrence and another cop tried to arrest Campbell many times. He kept resisting so they fired a Taser at his chest, police said.
This blast allegedly incapacitated the suspect temporarily but did not stop him cold, so they shot him with the stun gun a second time.
This prolonged attack prompted the police to fire the Taser at Campbell again, this time striking his left thigh, according to the arrest report.
Campbell was finally arrested and charged with battery, resisting arrest and exposing his body.
