Police Reports: Tosa Officer Tases Naked, Bloody, Raving Suspect

Assisting Milwaukee police, a Wauwatosa police officer is forced to use her Taser when she comes upon suspect who appears berserk and threatens her.

At 7:28 p.m. Sunday, Wauwatosa police were called to assist Milwaukee police with a report of a naked man who had broken out a window in the area of West Wright Street and North 60st Street. Another caller in the vicinity reported hearing a woman screaming.

A Wauwatosa officer found the man as described, naked, covered in blood and holding a piece broken glass in his hand. He failed to follow the officer's instructions to drop the glass and get on the ground, and in fact appeared to threaten her. She fired her Taser him, demobilizing him, and turned him over to Milwaukee officers.

She said that while lying on the ground, the subject yelled something that sounded like “Chipotle!”

Milwaukee police were following up reports that the man had been seen earlier near North 55th Street and West Meinecke Avenue, where he had stripped off his clothes.

The report noted that contact had been made with a female victim in the incident but offered no details on what transpired or what her condition was.
