A truck driver alleged to be intoxicated by marijuana caused a scene on a major road after being stopped by highway patrol in North Carolina, USA.
He had apparently informed policemen that he drove from California to North Carolina in a day (24 hours), even though the journey is normally supposed to last for a minimum 38 hours by road.
In a video which has gone viral, policemen asked him to step down from the truck, and give them his logbook for them to verify his claim.
He complied and alighted from the truck but the shocking thing he did next was to start walking towards the officers in a brazen manner. They felt threatened and shot tasers at him one by one.
That, however, did nothave any effect on him as he just continued walking like he was not being electrocuted.
He could be seen wearing a white T-shirt without any trousers, exposing his boxers.
A part of the clip showed when he removed the taser clip from his body and tried to put it on one of the policemen who had to retreat.
It took the intervention of another officer who came from the side walk to put him down. He walked towards the driver from behind and lifted his legs before slamming him on the floor.
Other security personnel rushed with tactical swiftness to restrain the man who was lying down on the floor.

Amah was presented a certificate of Award after he rejected a mouth watering bribe in a case of alleged armed robbery.
The Kano police officer was hailed by the IGP for exhibiting sound professionalism leading to the arrest of a Kano-based legal practitioner known as Ali Zaki, and some police officers, who are suspected accomplices.
The IGP’s commendation to SP Daniel was contained in a letter released to the press on Monday, August 15, 2022.
It was gathered that the DPO led security agents on an operation in Kano which resulted in the arrest of the suspected armed robbery syndicate.
The case was consequently transferred to the Force Headquarters in the Federal Capital Territory on the directive of the Inspector-general for discreet investigation.
