Weird News from Florida

Well, we do have our share of nuts in Florida….

A naked man was accidentally shocked in the genitals by a Taser after he was found breaking windows and asking women to touch him inappropriately, police said.

Jeremy J. Miljour, 26, of Bonita Springs, attempted to run when approached by Lee County sheriff’s deputies Saturday. When he ignored requested to stop, Deputy Daniel Hollywood shot Miljour with a Taser.

One of the Taser prongs accidentally hit Miljour’s genitals and got stuck, said Cpl. Matt Chitwood.

Every man reading that sentence just involuntarily folded in half.

Officers are taught to aim for the torso, but it was difficult for officers to aim because Miljour was moving, Chitwood said.

“The Taser is relatively accurate, but when someone is moving like that, it doesn’t matter if you have a Taser, or a pistol. (Officers) can’t aim,” Chitwood said.

Miljour was taken to Lee Memorial HealthPark Medical Center, where he was treated before being taken to the Lee County jail. He is charged with indecent exposure, resisting an officer and criminal damage.

You know it’s a slow news week when this story makes the “most e-mailed” list.
