A man who was naked from the waist down has died following a bizarre confrontation with police on the city's northeast side, Police Sergeant Javier Salazar tells Newsradio 1200 WOAI.

The man was found passed out in a vehicle on the 35 access road near Eisenhauer, but when EMS attempted to take him to  a hospital for observation, he sped off, slamming into a bicycle and a pickup truck.

When the half naked man remained bellicose, officers zapped him with a taser.

He was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center, where he died.

Salazar says tests will be conducted to see if the man had drugs or alcohol in his system.. he said he didnt know the condition of the pickup driver or the cyclist.
