Naked man shot with Taser at Atlanta airport

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta police say a naked man who was acting erratically at an Atlanta airport gate was shocked with a Taser and will likely face criminal charges.

Police spokesman Greg Lyon says the naked 23-year-old man was at a Delta gate in the A concourse of the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport Thursday morning yelling and acting strangely.

Lyon says airport police were called to try calming the man down, but he kept yelling and an officer shot him with a Taser to try controlling the situation without a physical fight.

Lyon says the man was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for a medical evaluation and will be charged with disorderly conduct.
