Naked & Tased



A 300-pound man was arrested after he was seen walking around an Exton, Pa., Walmart wearing nothing but socks. It was later discovered that the only apparel the man had on was stolen from the store, police say.

Employees at Walmart called police at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, saying that there was a naked man walking around the store, authorities say.

When police arrived they found 32-year-old Verdon Lamont Taylor in the store wearing only socks, police say. When Taylor would not comply with officers, the 6-feet, 4-inch tall, 300-pound man was tasered and taken into custody. Taylor proceeded to spit in an officer’s face, police say.

Upon viewing surveillance video, police learned that Taylor walked into the store completely naked and walked straight to the customer service counter, stole a pair of socks there, and put them on his feet.

The video also shows shoppers avoiding Taylor as he proceeded to walk through the store.

Taylor, who lives on the 100 block of East Church Street in Downingtown, Pa., was arraigned on charges of indecent exposure, aggravated assault, simple assault, retail theft, receiving stolen property and disorderly conduct.

He is being held at Chester County Prison on $50,000 cash bail.

    In the charges they forgot to mention he was carrying 300 lbs of crack.

    If he can’t afford to buy socks, not sure how he’s going to pay the 50k bail.

    was his original intent to swipe socks? or did he only realize after he got there that his feet were cold?

    Had he placed the sock somewhere else, would the indecent exposure charge been dropped?

    Really? He had enough time to walk from his car to the door, to the customer service counter, then around the store? Someone didn’t have the balls to call the police as soon as the saw him walking in the parking lot? Cause its not unusual, at all, to see a 300 lb. man walking around bare ass naked….

    How could they charge him with theft? It’s like drinking a bottle of OJ while shopping then paying for it on your way out. It’s only theft if you walk out without paying for it. The police carried him out. I’m sure he had a few bucks hidden in a belly roll.

    Seems a little odd that there just so happened to be 1 pair of socks, that would fit him sitting on the service desk. Am I the only one who caught that???

    I think he just didn’t like waiting in lines. Wal-mart is always so crowded. No better way to get through a crowd of people than to walk around naked. You’ll have at least 10 feet of clear space around you at all times. No waiting at the checkout. It’s all good.
    No shoes, no shirt, no pants? No problem.

    How do these people make it past the door greeters like this! I worked in the garden center at Walmart and I would have told him to go home and put some clothes on and come back. I’ve turned people around before trying to carry in their little dogs. People usually understand. Somebody needs to talk to these door greeters! Sorry if I come off a bit angry but I felt like I worked hard while I was there while everybody else slacked and the managers didn’t care about anything ever. My experience was so bad I refuse to shop there anymore. :S

    I work at walmart, and our greeters are there to welcome the customer into the store. One of 3 things could have happened in this situation, there may not have been a greeter at the time, the greeter saw it and alerted a manager about what was going on, or the greeter saw it and said something to the man and he completely ignored them. The point to all this is, give the greeter a break, they can only do so much……

    50000 bail is way too much. He hurt nobody. He stole one pair of socks, and walked around naked. Public nudity should not be a crime – it hurts nobody. Stealing socks is a crime, but not a $500000 crime. He should only have to pay back the price of the socks.
