Brett S. Henderson, from St. Paris, Ohio, was tasered by Cincinnati police after running part of the Flying Pig Marathon naked (plus running shoes).
Police say Henderson was told to exit the race and get in a police car but he refused, running around an officer and continuing to run in the race. Eventually, Henderson was instructed to get in a car or he would be Tased. Henderson kept on running and an officer Tased him.
Henderson was charged with public indecency and obstructing official business.
Witnesses claim that Henderson was not just naked, but naked fast, maintaining a 7:30 pace until cops tasered him.
The real question is, at a 7:30 pace, how in the world did a cop catch him?
Henderson’s mother claims her son’s shorts were just too big and kept falling down. One report stated that he had borrowed them from his father.
Like experienced runners will tell you, “Run the race in what you train with!”
I ran the Flying Pig this past weekend, and I’m glad I didn’t run into Henderson’s piggie tail.
Perhaps it’s best for this streaker that mug shots are taken from the neck up.
