Nude Fla. man 'proposing marriage' TASERed by police

The suspect told police he was there to propose, but the homeowners said he had the wrong house

CASSELBERRY, Fla. — Police say a naked man earned a trip to jail after spitting on an officer.

A 911 call came in to Casselberry police a little after 4 a.m. Sunday.

The caller said Thomas Edwards Jr., 22, was on the caller's porch, stripping naked.

When police got there, the man said he wanted to go to jail and threatened to either head butt an officer or spit on them.

"He jumped up, and in one quick motion, he launched himself toward the officer and he spit in his face," said Casselberry police Sgt. William Nas.

Edwards was stunned with a Taser and then arrested.

The suspect said he was invited to the house to propose marriage, but no one in the home knew who he was.
