A naked man jumped from an apartment Saturday and then reportedly fought with security guards before sparring with police officers.

Brandon Evans, 21, was arrested and charged with second degree assault on a police officer, first degree criminal trespass and criminal mischief.

Colorado Springs Police responded to the call of a naked man jumping from a window at the Arbor Point Apartments at 2503 Hancock Expressway. When they arrived, they observed the man jumping through a window on the opposite side of the building.

Police ordered the man from the apartment. Once outside, he still refused to cooperate. Police then used a taser on the man twice before deploying a canine.

Police say the man continued to resist, even after being handcuffed, and kicked an officer in the stomach on the way to the police cruiser.

Police say they believe the man was under the influence of narcotics.

The man was transported to a local hospital for treatment for multiple injuries from jumping through the windows, and the canine contact. Police say he will be booked into jail once he's released from the hospital.
