The man appeared to be under the influence of drugs and or alcohol, police say.

According to police, the man was eventually handcuffed after police found out he had warrants out for his arrest out of Two Rivers.

Police officers arrested a 32-year-old Manitowoc man Sunday evening for standing in the street without any clothes on.

During the altercation, officers used a Taser on Tingler three times. When they tried to put him in the squad auto, he kicked officers.

"The deployment of the Taser more than likely hit the lighter the person was holding in their hand, which caused a small burst, flame burst", Trilling said. When police arrived on the scene, they found the subject naked and shouting that he had a knife and meant to gut people in the home. This time, he fell to the ground, hitting his head on the pavement. Hospital staff said Tingler tested positive for marijuana and had a blood-alcohol count of 0.177.
