300-Pound Naked Man Walks into Walmart, Steals Socks: Police
nbcphiladelphia ^

Posted on 02/17/2012 8:01:07 AM PST by traumer

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.

If you’ve ever been to the website , peopleofwalmart.com, you know that the employees have probably seen just about everything. This opens a whole new chapter.

stole a pair of socks there, and put them on his feet.

Good article. It answered my questions about how many and where he wore them. (or more accurately it destroyed my third sock joke).

He went to the customer service counter to steal socks? They were probably defective socks that somebody returned. They were probably missing a button or something. Wait....maybe the socks were oppressed. Was he looking for “free socks” or to “free the socks”? He might be an occupy guy.

"Verdon Lamont Taylor"?

Sounds like another Quaker gone amok. Is that prejudiced of me...?
