It’s been a while since we had a jock Tasered by cops. And we can’t ever recall one being zapped by two cops at the same time. But then again, we haven’t had a story before about a allegedly drunk, naked college football player (all 6’2″ 301 lbs of him) breaking into a stranger’s home in the middle of the night, then getting down into a 3-point stance to charge arresting officers. He might have had it coming.
You’re truly one of a kind, Tyler Patrick Thomas, freshman offense lineman for the Oregon State Beavers.
Officers responded to a report of an intoxicated stranger inside a Corvallis home at 5 a.m. Sunday. The residents told police the man had done damage to a computer in an office room, police said. When police arrived, the man didn’t comply with instructions from officers.
“He got down into a 3-point stance, like football players do, like a lineman, and lunged at the officers,” Sgt. Mike Mann with the Corvallis Police Department told KVAL News. The two officers both fired their Tasers at the same time, Mann said.
