Build a business case: developing custom apps

Florida cops last Saturday administered a solid tasering to a 65-year-old man who decided to go for a naked wander through a Sarasota neighbourhood.

Police mugshot of Duncan KirkAccording to Tampa Bay Online, Duncan Kirk (right), of Bradenton, was spotted in his birthday suit about 7.30pm making his way through locals' back gardens. When deputies duly arrived, he was found "sitting inside a home's screened-in patio", as Sgt Darin Bankert later explained.

The old timer then decided to make a run for it, but was quickly apprehended. He resisted officers' attempts to cuff him, even when hit with a dose of gel-based pepper spray, so cops tasered him twice.

Kirk was charged with "prowling and resisting arrest with violence", and released on Sunday from Manatee County Jail after coughing $1,200 bail. ®
