A naked man found laying in the TA Truck Stop parking lot off US 601 North Monday evening didn’t give up without a fight.

When Mocksville police officers arrived, they tried to speak to the man, but he fled to a vehicle.

He then charged at an officer who chased him, said Major P.A. Reagan. “The officer was able to activate his Taser, but  the device had no effect on him.”

The suspect continued to fight the officer, and another person in the parking lot before being subdued and restrained.

Neither the officer or the suspect reported any injuries, although the suspect was evaluated by Davie Medical Center before being arrested.

Curtis Matthews, 27, of Raleigh, was charged with assault and assault on a government official.
