(WBIR) Maryville police said a drunk man damaged one of their cruisers after they arrested him for standing in the street naked Friday night.

Officers were initially dispatched to the 1500 block of Irwin Avenue for a medical call, but when they arrived, they found Joseph Edward Morris, 35, standing naked in the middle of the road screaming, according to Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp. Police arrested Morris for public intoxication.

First responders couldn't give him any medical assistance because he was extremely violent, so they place him in the back of a police cruiser, according to officials. Crisp said Morris started kicking the back driver's side window with his feet, eventually knocking it out of the window.

Officials charged Morris with public intoxication and vandalism.
