A naked man who called 911 to complain about being bitten, possibly by bugs, was arrested Monday after pulling a rifle on a sheriff’s deputy.
Bulloch County 911 operators, sensing a possibly dangerous situation, kept the man on the line while dispatching a deputy to a Brooklet-area, said Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Jared Akins.
Deputy Will Craig arrived at the scene around 3:15 p.m. Monday to find Jason Ezekiel Proctor, 42, of the home, “sitting on a table, naked” with his back to the deputy, sheriff’s incident reports stated.
After Craig announced his presence, Proctor “leaped off the table and pointed a black and gray rifle in my direction in an offensive manner,” he stated in reports.
Craig took cover, drew his own pistol and ordered Proctor several times to “drop the rifle and lay face first on the ground,” he said.
Once handcuffed, Proctor again “became uncooperative and resisted walking to my patrol car,” Craig wrote, adding that he carried the suspect to his patrol vehicle.
Craig recovered the rifle, a .22-caliber Remington loaded with three long rifle rim fire cartridges. A search of Proctor’s camper, which was open, revealed marijuana.
Proctor was charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
