Ball player gets Beaver ban after drunken naked tasering

Nude trespassing was 'icing on the cake'

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

An up and coming football player has been kicked off the Oregon State University team after local cops were forced to tase him after he was found "naked and intoxicated" in a stranger's home.

Tyler Patrick Thomas, a 19-year-old lineman for the Beavers, as the OSU team is known, was found by cops responding to reports of "a naked intruder" at a home in Corvallis, the AP reports.

When cops arrived at the house, they told the six foot two, 301 pound, Thomas to get on the ground.

Instead, the AP reports, the "absolutely... intoxicated" and naked Thomas dropped into a "three point stance" and lunged at the cops.

The cops decided not to play ball, and instead gave the belligerent ballplayer a righteous tazing.

The presumably subdued Thomas was then arrested "on suspicion of criminal trespass, criminal mischief and resisting arrest". The damaged articles apparently included a computer and a rug.

He was quickly released from jail, and almost as quickly released from the Beavers.

Local rag The Gazette Times said Thomas had previously been cited by police for an alcohol-related offense.

It quoted head coach Mike Riley saying Thomas was a "smart person" who had done something inexcusable.

"This is not his first go-around with this, and it's partly a result of that (first incident). The move was not a one-time thing. It was a number of reasons. This was icing on the cake." ®
