Washington cop tases naked lawn sex man

Second jolt needed for in flagrante lawn mower

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

A Washington cop tased a semi-naked man who took umbrage at being interrupted during some al fresco nookie in the Pacific Northwest state on Tuesday morning.

The deputy happened upon the 21-year-old Patrick Bergin and his paramour at 2am while responding to a complaint about loud music. The pair were allegedly having sex outside "a house in the 14000 block of Vail Cutoff Road" in Yelm, the Seattle Post Intelligencer reports.

The PI reports that the pair appeared "highly intoxicated" but clearly not so intoxicated that they couldn't manage the act of outdoor intercourse.

The pair reportedly begin to dress while the deputy demanded ID. At this point, apparently, the woman screamed and took to her heels, while Bergin approached the deputy instead of sitting on the lawn as ordered. Whether the lawn was messy is not recorded.

The deputy, believing he was about to be assaulted - the report doesn't say with what - tased the wouldbe assailant. However, Bergin pulled out the barbs, forcing the deputy to reload and give the randy outdoorsman a second charge.

"The second jolt was enough to convince him to cooperate with the deputy," a spokesman said.

Bergin is under arrest for third degree assault, the report adds, though not it appears, indecent exposure. The deputy then achieved his original mission of asking the homeowner to turn down his music.

A quick rustle through the weather charts show that temperatures in Yelm on Tuesday were a less than balmy 12 degrees centigrade. ®
