Now, we’ve all heard the “Allah told me to do it” line before — whether to bring world-peace (while beating others to death) or driving recklessly — but this is certainly new. Either way, this is not Islamic, as Allah would hardly ever tell anyone to walk dogs in the nude. But, just for the record…
“Naked man walking dog Tasered by Tallahassee police,” by Nic Corbett, for Tallahassee.com, September 13 (thanks to Staks):
A 40-year-old man walking his dog in the nude Friday night in northwest Tallahassee was Tasered by police when he became belligerent and refused to follow an officer’s commands.
An officer on patrol spotted the man about 8:15 p.m. in the 2200 block of Hartsfield Road, said Officer David McCranie of the Tallahassee Police Department.
When asked what he was doing, the man 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,” he said. “It was unfortunate we had to use the Taser. “¦ 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.
