Naked basketball player goes on rampage

The phrase "Let's get naked" is part of the lexicon in the 'How to Party at College' handbook that I assume every student somehow receives upon beginning their higher education. The phrase "Naked Rampage" appears to be a new entry.

After being cut from the Fresno Pacific University basketball team, 21-year-old student Leonard Tyrell Young followed the first part of the handbook and "got naked". So far so good. Unfortunately, Young wend on to assault two women, attempt to steal a police car, and attack a police officer and his dog – all while naked.

 Police had to use a Taser to bring down the six-foot naked basketball player. Apparently, Young had been dismissed from the team for "a violation of team standards."

In case you are wondering, drug use was a factor – page one of he handbook. Young is being held on suspicion of carjacking, resisting arrest, vandalism, harming a police dog and being under the influence of a controlled substance.
