Chances are pretty good that you’ve never heard a freakout story quite like this one.  This tale has everything—nudity, controlled substances, tasers, police dogs, and rampaging.  Oh the rampaging.

Leonard Tyrell Young is, or should I say, was a player for the Division II Fresno Pacific University basketball team until his dismissal for a “violation of team standards,” which was later revealed to be that Young had missed a game.  Rules are rules—miss a game and you’re off the team.  No fuss, no muss.

Young, however, wasn’t too pleased with getting booted off the team, and his resulting foray into naked madness is frightening, sad, incredible, and one helluva wild ride for everyone involved.  Let’s just say it started with Young trashing his apartment before stripping down to his birthday suit and running out into the street.  Things deteriorated quickly from there.

From the Fresno Bee…

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.

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.

Now that’s how you fill a quiet Monday night—with some good old-fashioned naked rampaging.  But when the police taser you three times after you fight both a cop and his dog while trying to steal their car, it’s time to call it a night.

Hey, if  you’re gonna go out, might as well go out with a bang…a big, nude, crazy bang.
