The Fresno Bee is reporting that a 21-year-old Leonard Tyrell Young had a minor flip out upon hearing that he got cut from the Fresno Pacific University basketball team.  The minor flip out included Leonard doing the following: he got naked as the day he was born and ran through a parking lot near the Fresno Pacific University campus, assaulted two women, finally he tried to steal a police car and struck an officer and police dog.

There is a pretty incredible incident, enjoy the police description of it is all of its glory:

About 11:30 p.m. Monday, officers went to Chestnut and Butler avenues in southeast Fresno after getting reports of a naked man running in the street. Callers said he seemed intoxicated and was pounding his fists on cars.

The first officer who arrived watched Young, who is 6 feet tall and weighs 170 pounds, until other officers could assist him.

Young’s friends, who said they were members of the Fresno Pacific basketball team, told the officer that Young had been kicked off the team about an hour earlier. They said he “tore up” his apartment in the nearby Cypress Pointe complex, then ran naked into the street.

Witnesses at a gas station said Young assaulted two women in the parking lot, knocking one to the ground. Young also reportedly pounded his fists on the bullet-proof glass at the store and on several cars in the parking lot.

As officer Brian Sturgeon was getting his dog, Jack, out of his police car, Young ran up to him. Sturgeon pushed Young back, but Young got in the front seat and put the car in drive.

Sturgeon and Young grappled, and Jack bit Young on his thigh. Young hit the dog as he tried to drive off. Sturgeon and Jack were only partially in the car as they tried to stop Young.

Sturgeon managed to put a foot on the brake pedal, but Young drove the car at about 10 mph across the street. It came to a stop at the gas station.

Officers tried to pull Young from the car. Officer Zack Chastain shot his Taser at Young, but it had no effect. He tried twice more, but he could not slow Young.

Young kept a strong grip on the steering wheel as Sturgeon and officer Theran Higginbotham tried to pull him from the car. Finally, a blow to Young’s wrist with a flashlight loosened his grip on the steering wheel, and he was pulled out of the car and handcuffed.

No officers were injured, and Jack was unharmed.
