Police Use Taser on Aggressive Half-Naked Man

Wheaton police used a Taser on a half-naked man after he resisted arrest and took aggressive steps toward officers.

Wheaton police used a Taser on a half-naked man Wednesday night after he took "aggressive steps" toward them near the intersection of Briarcliffe Boulevard and 22nd Street, according to police Chief Mark Field.

After a report of a man without pants walking around an apartment complex around 10:20 p.m., police found Christopher Shukin of Glen Ellyn in the 1600 block of South Briarcliffe Boulevard. Shukin tried to run, and when he clenched his fists and took aggressive steps toward the officers, they used the Taser on him, police said.

He went to the ground and continued to resist arrest. Police used the Taser again and he was taken into custody.

He is charged with criminal trespassing, disorderly conduct—breach of peace, disorderly conduct—peeping Tom, resisting arrest and violation of bail from an Oct. 21 arrest in Glen Ellyn.

He was released on cash bond.
