DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Deputies in Isabella County said they arrested a naked man who was running in and out of traffic and claimed to be on meth at the time.

Sheriff’s deputies said several 911 calls were made by drivers who saw the man running through traffic on M-20 Saturday afternoon. Deputies said they later learned the man attempted to get into two vehicles driving in the area. A family of four, including a 3-year-old child and 3-month-old infant were in one vehicle. A woman in another vehicle told authorities the man was yelling at her while fondling himself.

When police arrived, the 32-year-old man refused orders to get on the ground and approached a deputy who attempted to tase the man.

The taser missed and the suspect walked aggressively toward a second deputy who successfully tased the man, according to a release from the Isabella County Sheriff’s Department.

Authorities said the man was “aggressively resisting” arrest after being brought down to the ground and later told deputies he was on meth.

The man’s name is not being released until his arraignment.
