Man Wearing Just Red Underwear Attacks Police Officer: Cops
A Louisiana man attacked a cop while wearing only a pair of red underwear, according to Baton Rouge police.
Arresting officers say they encountered Jeremy Wayne Saylor after receiving a call about a disturbance at a mobile home park Saturday.
According to court documents obtained by WAFB, the 35-year-old had been using synthetic marijuana and charged a police vehicle when they arrived.
When they first arrived, cops say Saylor was wearing nothing but red underwear.
"[Officers] were dispatched to the trailer park relative to a black male high on the narcotic 'mojo' yelling and screaming at people and attacking family members," the probable cause report said.
Officers claim Saylor attacked them with "superhuman strength."
"[Saylor] started punching the windshield several times with his free hand putting a large beach ball size star in the glass," even while officers had his other arm pinned in a door.
The officers say they hit Saylor with a stun gun four times to no effect.
According to the report, the suspect "was punching and hitting officers, trying to escape capture" during the arrest and was even able to get away from officers and into a police vehicle.
The suspect the "drove in reverse at a high rate of speed that officers were falling out of the vehicle and officers had to get out of the way to avoid getting run over," the documents say.
When the vehicle crashed, cops say they were able to subdue and arrest Saylor.
He was booked at East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on five charges of attempted murder of a police officer, resisting with violence, auto theft, and felony damage to property.
Saylor remained behind bars as of Monday afternoon.
