Florida man Tasered after naked marriage proposal at wrong house
A Florida man who went to the wrong house to propose to his girlfriend in the nude was shocked with a Taser this week after spitting on a police officer.
WKMG reported that 22-year-old Thomas Edwards claimed to Casselberry police that his he had gone to the address given to him by his girlfriend and started taking off his clothes in preparation for a marriage proposal.
But in a 911 call obtained by the Daily Mail, the homeowners told dispatchers that they had no idea who Edwards was.
“What color shirt does he have on?” the dispatcher asked.
“Er, he doesn’t have a shirt on,” the homeowner explained. “Er, he is kind of walking around and taking his pants off.”
When police arrived, Edwards reportedly told them that “he just wanted to go to jail” and wondered if assaulting an officer with a head-butt would get him arrested.
“I told him not to try it,” an officer recalled telling the Seminole County man.
According to WKMG, police ordered Edwards to get dressed, but he refused and spit in an officer’s face. He was Tasered and arrested on charges of burglary of a dwelling, battery on a law enforcement officer and indecent exposure.
