GRAHAM, N.C. An Alamance County man was on the front stoop of his mobile home, wearing only his boxer shorts and an undershirt, when an Elon police officer zapped him with a stun gun less than a minute after he answered the door.

John Wayne Paylor, 53, found half of Elon's police force outside his home on June 18, 2006, to arrest him for a misdemeanor traffic violation from the day before.
