School tasers naked, oil-smeared student

Shocking end to slippery streak

A Ohio high school student who decided it was a "good idea" to strip naked, anoint himself with grapeseed oil and "run amok" in the school's canteen earned himself a double tasering for his trouble, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

At lunchtime on Monday, 18-year-old Taylor C Killian inexplicably "strolled into a bathroom" close to dining fellow students at Westerville North High School, "removed his clothes, smeared grapeseed oil on himself and ran into the lunch crowd".

Pandemonium duly ensued as "students unsure of what was happening ran and screamed". Confronted by a school administrator, Killian "made sexual gestures and ran, continuing to chase students".

School resource officer Doug Staysniak then joined the pursuit, ordering the slippery streaker to stop. Killian declined, and when he "ran toward a group of students huddled in a corner", Staysniak let him have it with both prongs. Killian then tried to stand up, which attracted a second blast of juice.

He was subsequently cuffed, whisked to hospital to have the taser prongs excised, then "booked and taken to the Delaware County jail" on "inducing panic, public indecency, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct" raps.

Killian later confessed to police: "It just seemed like a good idea at the time."

Westerville police Lt John Petrozzi said cops don't believe drink or drugs played a part in the prank, but noted: "This had the potential to get very much out of control. He certainly created quite a bit of emotional trauma and stress."

Petrozzi added: "He's not offered any apology. He said he was looking to create some excitement and get an adrenaline rush. Hindsight being 20/20, [he] should have ate a burger instead. Put a jalapeno on it. I don't know."

When the courts have finished with him, Killian also faces disciplinary action back at Westerville North. He apparently "made his school's honour roll in each of three grading periods during the 2005-06 school year", which may mitigate in his favour. ®
