GULF BREEZE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida deputy tasered a naked man who was wandering through a neighborhood during a rain storm.

The Pensacola News-Journal reports Joseph John Musso was arrested Thursday and charged with loitering and prowling, lewd and lascivious behavior, resisting an officer without violence and exposure of sexual organs.

Authorities were called by a resident who said his security camera showed a naked man walking by the front door. A second person then called the Santa Rosa Sheriff's Office who said they saw a naked man with an erection.

Amid heavy rainfall, a deputy tried to apprehend the man but he ran away. The deputy then fired his Taser at Musso.

The arrest report states that the 63-year-old Musso told deputies he receives sexual gratification by being naked in public.

It is not known if he has an attorney.
