HOUSTON, TX (RNN) - Police used a stun gun on a naked man who sprayed them with pesticide spray and slapped an officer.

The June 6 confrontation between the man and police was caught on video.

Police said Keith Dean, 49, was walking around Houston naked and was approached by a man who offered him a towel to cover up, according to KTRK.

Dean then asked the man for his watch, and the man obliged. 

Witnesses said Dean sprinted away after taking the watch, sprayed people on the train platform then hopped on the Houston METRO train.

A confrontation later occurred between Dean and police. Dean walked towards officers and aimed the pesticide spray at them.

One officer took the spray from Dean, who then lunged forward and slapped the officer in the face.

The video showed that officers then used a stun gun on Dean to subdue him.

Police then arrested Dean, and the situation ended with no injuries.

Dean was charged with assault-bodily injury of a public servant.
