Police believe that Blake Tokman, 34, was under the influence of unknown substances that prompted him to go on a wild spree in the middle of the night, according to a statement by Volusia County Sheriffs.

It was all caught on footage from a deputy’s body camera as Tokman took off when he was spotted, fleeing in the buff through a backyard after deputies answered a burglary in progress call on Highbanks Road in DeBary around 2 am.

“I got one running going westbound behind the fence, he’s naked,” an officer can be heard saying over his radio before giving chase at the second house Tokman broke into.

Tokman jumped into a pool, got out,  and then face-planted on a trampoline as an officer caught up with him. As he lay there spread-eagled, the man didn’t appear to be concerned in the least when the deputy detaining him threatened to taser him. Getting a grip on the guy must have been a battle.

Baked out of his mind evidently, it took a number of officers to handcuff Tokman. He was reportedly bleeding a great deal from his head and repeatedly shouted “What’s your name?” every time they ordered him to stop resisting.

“Be careful, he’s slippery,” one of the officers remarked. “What’s all over you, man? … It smells like toothpaste … I don’t want to see what’s on me.”

The homeowner ventured outside to tell the police he had no idea who the man was.

“A lifeguard is what I am!” Tokman shouted.

“You’re lucky you’re not dead, homie,” the homeowner informed the sky-high suspect.

Police claim that Tokman broke into two homes before they found and gave chase. Officers believe he smashed the windows of one of the homes to get inside. There were people at home in both residences when Tokman broke into them.

It is unknown what was taken from the homes if anything, according to the New York Post.

In the end, it took four deputies to subdue Tokman and three medical professionals to strap him on a stretcher for evaluation and treatment of injuries he caused himself. He kicked three of the officers hard enough to give one deputy a laceration on his arm the sheriff’s office said.

Police determined the man had covered himself in “wheel-bearing grease, peppermint oil, and blood,” for some unknown reason.

Tokman was charged with occupied burglary, battery on a law enforcement officer, criminal mischief, and resisting arrest with violence. He was taken to a hospital to be evaluated and will be booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail.

When he comes down he will find himself behind bars.
