Naked man prompts bomb scare at gas station

CCTV:July 31/08:TWINSBURG, Ohio -- A scuffle between police and a man at a Twinsburg gas station Thursday prompted the bomb squad to be called to check out suspicious packages.

Police said officers went to the BP gas station at state Route 82 and Interstate 480 Thursday afternoon after receiving a call about a strangely behaving man.

Police said the man picked up some items and went into the bathroom, emerging a few minutes later naked and mumbling.

A scuffle between the man and officers broke out, and police used a Taser gun. The scuffle went out into the parking lot, and the suspect was restrained, police said.

Police said the man indicated there were explosives in a vehicle. The bomb squad came and removed two suspicious packages, but no explosives were found.

The suspect was taken to Bedford Hospital for evaluation. A Twinsburg officer injured his hand.

Charges against the suspect are pending.
