O’Fallon, Mo., officer shoots ‘out of control’ naked suspect during struggle
The man who called 911 said his son and two other people were “tripping on acid” at his home, authorities said. The caller told police that he ran out of his house when Davis took a club and started swinging it. Police described the club as a medieval-looking replica with spikes on it.
O’Fallon Police Officer Thomas Kenyon arrived to find Davis, naked and in the middle of the street, court documents say. Kenyon confronted Davis, who attacked.
Joachimstaler said that Davis reached for the officer’s gun and got the handle of the officer’s Taser and hit the officer with the Taser. Davis also bit the officer, an 11-year veteran of the department, in the face.
During the struggle, Kenyon shot Davis in the leg and arm.
