AUGUST 15, 2006 - Posted at 2:59 p.m. CDT

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A Cape Girardeau police officer is unhurt after being attacked by a naked man.

It happened Sunday after the officer was called to a trailer park and spotted the naked man.  As the officer was getting out of his car, the 52-year-old man walked toward the squad car and grabbed the officer, slamming him into the side of the vehicle.

The officer fired his stun gun, but the assailant kept attacking.  When the two fell to the ground, the man attempted to grab the officer's handgun.

A second officer arrived and also used his stun gun on the suspect.

The man was suspected of being under the influence of drugs, and was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Charges have not been filed.  The officer was not seriously hurt.
