Police use Taser on streaker


WWAY TV linked to YouTube video of the incident on its website.

Tasers shoot darts that embed in the skin and then apply an electric shock that disrupts voluntary control of muscles.

The Wilmington Star-News reported the man is 23-year-old East Carolina University student Matthew Martin Pick. He was charged with indecent exposure.

The YouTube video shows Pick lying face down naked in the street.

The Star-News reported New Hanover County Sheriff Ed McMahon called using the Taser justified because Pick was ordered to stop and he did not.
