WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. — It was an arrest that drew double takes: A jogger — remarkably fast and stark naked — sprinted past a police car here. The officer gave chase and, unable to get the man to stop, used a stun gun to subdue the man before arresting him.

The incident was captured using a Taser Cam, a stun gun-mounted camera that's gaining popularity among law enforcement.
