(KSL News) Salt Lake police say even a taser wasn't enough to subdue a man who was wandering naked at a Super 8 Motel.

Employees called police when Michael Ellis repeatedly exited his room naked.

When officers arrived, Ellis refused to cooperate and resisted arrest. Police say they tasered him, struck him with batons, and then still had to wrestle him to the ground.

Drugs were found in his motel room, and Ellis was taken to a hospital for treatment.
