Lafayette's participation in the Live PD television program was enlivened last night by the arrest of a naked man in the parking lot of a local apartment complex.

The police officer with whom the A&E program's crew was riding got to the call just as two other officers were trying to talk to the man, who was wandering in the lot, completely nude and waving his arms. One of the officers used a taser on the man, and as he continued to struggle another officer jumped and kicked him to the ground.

Three officers cuffed the man, who continued to struggle as he was facedown on the parking lot.

As they were on the ground, the man's roommate came out - wearing only a T-shirt.

"He doesn't have pants on, either?" an officer is heard to say.

After the man was cuffed and placed in the back of a police unit, the officer with the television crew walks up to the roommate, who asks if he can go put on some pants.

"Well, it's casual Tuesday, right?" the officer responds. "So. How'd y'all end up naked?"

Here's the clip, so you can see for yourself:
