Taser Stops Naked Man’s Assault on Ambulance

05/10/2015 – A Tulsa man was arrested Friday after EMSA paramedics reported he began banging on the side of an ambulance while naked, police said.

Daryl Williams, 40, was at the Tulsa Jail on Saturday afternoon on misdemeanor complaints of outraging public decency and public intoxication.

Tulsa police officers received a call around 6:20 p.m. about a naked man who walked from Pine Street and Lewis Avenue to Pine Street and Utica Avenue while naked, Cpl. Demario Gay said in a release. EMSA paramedics then reported the man was banging on the side of their ambulance, which was parked at 1700 E. Pine St., Gay said.

Once Gay arrived at the scene, he said he told Williams to lie on his stomach but that he sat down and did not follow commands until two other officers with Tasers arrived. “Daryl was advised he would be Tased before deciding to lie down and be taken into custody,” Gay said, adding that Williams appeared to be under the influence of drugs.
