Posted on May 13, 2012


Wisconsin (The Gaslamp Post) – A sheriff’s deputy responding to a call of a car in a farmer’s field, had to use his taser on a half-naked man, Saturday night.  Police say that the man was found covered in mud, naked from the waist down, and was attempting to cover the car in mud as well.

According to Sheriff’s Lt. Dale Wisnewski, 25-year-old, Dustin Radke, of Birnamwood, was believed to have been trying to free the car from the field but for reasons unknown, began trying to cover it in mud.  Radke reportedly became agitated and resisted arrest.  The officer was able to take Radke into custody after using his taser to bring him down.

Radke was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.  Alcohol is believed to have been a factor.  “Something weird was going on there,” Wisnewski said.
