KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee man has been arrested after witnesses say he threw personal belongings from the balcony of his apartment complex, pulled the fire alarm and frolicked naked on the street Wednesday evening.

The Knoxville News-Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/2rEVpZg ) witness Derek Strickland says he saw the man toss items. A reporter found chairs, clothes, DVDs, a laptop, a speaker and a bong.

Knoxville police did not return the newspaper's request for comment.

Witness Jeremy Bagwell says the naked man ran out after the alarm sounded and did snow angels on the sidewalk. Bagwell says the man then ripped down a sign and wouldn't obey an officer's order to stop.

Bagwell says the officer used a Taser on the man, and a second officer tackled him. He was taken away in an ambulance.
