A Forestville man faces drug possession and indecent exposure charges, after police found him running naked on Crain Highway early Tuesday.

It took a taser and several officers to arrest James Frederick Brown, 36, of the 7000 block Nimitz Drive. After he was treated at Baltimore Washington Medical Center, he was taken into custody. He also faces numerous CDS-related charges, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Officers found the suspect shortly after 2 a.m. at the intersection of Crain Highway and Hiddenbrook Drive in Glen Burnie. He was running, partially naked, and was acting in an incoherent manner. Police said he yelled threats and profanities, appeared to be under the influence of drugs and ignored numerous verbal commands. The suspect's agitated state and refusal to comply with police led one officer to use a Taser, but the man continued to resist arrest. Numerous officers were needed to take the suspect into custody.

Officers later found suspected PCP and crack cocaine in the suspect's possession.
