A naked man was arrested in Kingsport after beating on a police cruiser. The Kingsport Police Department reports that officers responded to Maple Oak Apartments on Monday afternoon when a naked white man jumped out from the shadows and started beating on the police cruiser while yelling. The man was later identified as Samuel Bellamy, who ran back toward the apartments and began climbing trees. More officers then arrived and Bellamy ran away on foot towards an adjacent parking lot. He refused to follow commands from officers and was tased. Bellamy was placed in handcuffs which is when he freely told officers that he had been using methamphetamine. He was transported to the Holston Valley Medical Center before being taken to the Kingsport City Jail. Bellamy is charged with disorderly conduct, indecent exposure, public intoxication, and resisting arrest.
