CORVALLIS, Ore. – The residents of the home where an Oregon State University player was tased and then arrested by police last weekend said while they were shaken by the stranger in their house, they now feel sorry for the young man.
Police said Tyler Thomas broke into the home early Sunday morning and then homeowner Jeremy Noring found Thomas naked and urinating in his office.
Noring called police and when they arrived, the officers said Thomas dropped into a three-point football stance and lunged at them. They slowed Thomas down by firing a stun gun at him twice, and then they cuffed him.
“I don't think he meant any real harm, I think he just had too much to drink and got a little rowdy,” said Noring, in hindsight.
Thomas was charged with trespassing and resisting arrest. He also lost his spot on the football team.
