Naked man tasered after tense stand-off with police

A MAN pretended to be armed, stripped naked and led police on a chase through the scrub before being subdued with a Taser.

Police were called to Ducklo-Gulera Rd at Kumbarilla by a 39-year-old man claiming to have a gun, with intent to kill himself and his partner.

When police arrived, the offender blocked the roadway with his vehicle and approached with his hand behind his back, shouting that he was armed with a gun.

More police arrived, blocking his avenue of escape.

He responded by stripping naked, moving into scrubland and eventually charging a police officer.

After being tasered, he was charged with eight offences, including driving under the influence.
