Casselberry, FLA: Thomas Edwards Jr., 22, is just a young man with a dream. A dream of taking his clothes off and proposing to some lucky girl.
The 22-year-old had a run-in with several Casselberry police officers after a homeowner called 911 to say a man had knocked on his door and was stripping down on his back porch.
When officers arrived about 3:45 a.m., an arrest report said, Edwards was “completely naked.” They told him to put his boxers back on.
Edwards, who said his name was “Zim,” told officers his girlfriend invited him over so that he could propose to her.
She wanted him to strip down, he said.
Where did you keep the ring, Thomas? Maybe he didn’t have the rock because it looks like he exhibited immediate regret.
Edwards told police “he just wanted to go to jail” and asked if head-butting an officer would get him there.
“I told him not to try it,” one of the responding officers reported.
Edwards then told the officer he would spit in his face.
“I again told him not to try it,” the officer stated.
Obviously Thomas spit in the guy’s face and the engagement had to wait another day.
Another officer tased Edwards in the left hip and thigh. Edwards fell, scraping his knee and foot on the driveway. He rolled over and pulled the taser prongs out.
The Maitland man was arrested on charges of indecent exposure in public, battery on an officer and burglary.
