Donald Watts, 38, was arrested in High Springs after police apprehended him rolling naked in a muddy ditch and making bird noises.
Action News Jacksonville reported that police were called to Southeast Brawley Terrace with reports that Watts was high on methamphetamine and acting erratically. While police were on the scene, a second 911 call was placed by a homeowner who said that a person was in his yard with a flashlight.
Deputies went to the complainant's home, where they spotted a flashlight being turned on and off and heard unusual noises. They investigated further and found Watts in the ditch, completely nude, pacing back and forth and making sounds with his mouth, according to Action News Jax.
When approached by police, Watts attempted to escape, hiding under the porch of a mobile home. After a brief standoff, he left his hiding place and engaged with police, punching one of the deputies several times, according to reports.
Two deputies used stun guns on Watts, to no effect. They called for backup and were soon joined by six other deputies, as well as Casper, a K-9 officer.
The group tracked Watts to nearby woods. When he saw Casper, the nude man got down on his hands and knees and began acting like a dog himself, Action News Jax reported.
