Sand Lake man charged after running without clothes; had to be tased several times

HOWARD CITY, Mich. – A Sand Lake man was arrested early Wednesday morning after allegedly running down a Howard City street, taking off his clothes and resisting police.

Nichols continued to resist and fled the scene according to deputies.  He was caught a short time later after being tased numerous times.

One deputy was treated for minor injuries.

Nichols has been charged with one count of resisting an officer causing an injury, two counts of resisting and obstructing an officer and one count of malicious destruction of police property.

    Where’s the obligatory “may have been under the influence” of something? Either he was, or simply is looney tunes on steroids.

        The media invariably uses those words to describe individuals who act in this way. The second part of what I said, I’ll stand by. I can’t believe the guy acts this way routinely or he needs serious help. Sorry to have offended you.

            Sorry, Shane. He may be a great guy. But anybody, and I mean anybody, that is sane and straight does not run around naked and can withstand being tased several times. As I said, he may be a wonderful, sane individual most of the time, but this time he wasn’t, and if he told you the truth I bet he’d agree.
