BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – A Jefferson County Jail inmate has quite a tale to tell about how he got there. The nude man claimed to be Jesus Christ and George Bush when sheriff’s deputies shot him with a stun gun after he ignored their commands.
A motorist spotted the 30-year-old standing nude in the middle of Alabama 79 early Friday morning and called police.
The man struggled with police and was shot with a Taser four times before they subdued him and put him in handcuffs and leg irons.
He told the deputies he was Jesus Christ and George Bush and could break the handcuffs.
Police say he appeared to be intoxicated. The man was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
