Posted: 10:05 AM- Tasers, batons and multiple officers could not subdue a man who was wandering naked in the hallway of a Super 8 Motel, police said.

The man, 44, prompted complaints from patrons Tuesday morning when he repeatedly exited his room in the buff at the motel, 616 S. 200 West. The man "took on officers and employees in an all-out fight," police stated.

Police called for backup. Deploying Tasers and striking batons, officers required "several more minutes" to wrestle the man into handcuffs and leg restraints.

Investigators say they found crack cocaine and paraphernalia in his room. The man was taken to a hospital for treatment.
