Naked man walking dog 'on Allah's orders' Tasered by police

Police in Florida have Tasered a 40-year-old man found walking his dog in the nude after he refused to follow an officer's commands.

David McCranie of the Tallahassee Police Department said an officer on patrol spotted the man shortly after 8 pm on Friday.

According to the Tallahassee Democrat the man was asked what he was doing and told the officer, "Allah told me to watch a Bruce Willis movie and walk the dog," McCranie said.

“He was obviously having some sort of emotional distress,” said McCranie.

“It was unfortunate we had to use the Taser. but it was the only way we could subdue him without having to hurt him.”

The man was then sent for mental-health evaluation and treatment.
