LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin man who was released from the Angelina County Jail following an arrest for getting naked for deputies was turned around and booked back into the jail after threatening the deputy he got naked for a day earlier, according to that deputy.

Lt. Bryan Holley said the adventure began Monday around 12:30 p.m. when he and another deputy were called out for a welfare check on FM 1475, after they were told a man was sitting on the side of the road.

When they arrived, Holley said the man, identified as Douglas Paul McCoy, 48, stripped himself naked.

"We've had dealings with him before about stalking his ex-wife," Holley said. "But I have to say this still surprised us when he took all his clothes off."

"He was smoking K-2," Holley said. "And he's very anti-social, anti-government, anti-law enforcement. We tried to get him to listen to us, but he was cussing us out and said he'd take our TAZERs and guns."

Holley said he and the other deputy eventually wrestled him to the ground and take him under arrest on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

"It's a little awkward just because when he's naked you don't have anything to grab hold of," he said.

The deputies took McCoy, naked in the back of the patrol unit, to the Angelina County Jail.

"He continued to be unpredictable and irate and cussing everyone and everything," Holley said.

Jailers put McCoy in a restraint chair and put a spit mask on him and clothed him.

When McCoy was being released on Tuesday around 9:30 a.m., he told the jailers he wanted to talk to the deputies that arrested him on Monday.

"We didn't want to talk to him," Holley said. "We said to just let him go and we didn't want him to cause anymore trouble."

"Well, that didn't work," Holley said. "Because when they released him, he saw us on the property and walked straight toward me."

Holley said McCoy again became uncooperative and belligerent and demanded his K-2 back.

"I told him it was a federal offense to have K-2 and we had processed it into evidence," Holley said. "That's when he said he was going to kick my [expletive] and come after me. I told him, 'No, you're not,' and that he was under arrest for retaliation."

Holley said McCoy again resisted arrest but deputies managed to book him back into the jail on the felony charge.
