A Taser Couldn't Stop This College Basketball Player From Going on a Naked Rampage

So, where do we even begin here? On Monday night, Fresno Pacific University player Leonard Tyrell Young got booted off the team for "a violation of team standards." And if there was any chance of him being reinstated to the team at some point, he immediately blew it.

Young allegedly returned to his apartment about an hour after getting the boot and proceeded to get drunk and tear the place up. He then took off all of his clothes (uh, why?) and ran through the neighboring streets naked before ending up at a convenience store, where he pounded on the bulletproof glass windows. In the parking lot outside, he then assaulted two women and knocked one of them to the ground. At that point, police arrived and tried to subdue Young. But he jumped into the front seat of their car, put it in drive, and attempted to pull off. In an effort to stop him from driving away, one of the responding officers shot his Taser at Young once, twice, and then a third time—but it didn't faze him. They finally managed to pry his hands free from the car's steering wheel by beating one of his wrists with a flashlight (Note to self: Don't make fun of cops equipped with flashlights anymore!) but not before a police dog bit Young and was then subsequently punched in the face by him. Finally, they handcuffed him and took him down to the station.

Whew. Did you catch all that? If not, here's the point of the whole story: Don't drink to try and ease the pain of getting kicked off a college basketball team. In the end, it's just not worth it.
