Cops: Man stabs himself, is Tasered by police
If the allegations against Walter Seeley III prove true, he gives new meaning to the term thick-skinned.
Around 2:30 a.m. Saturday, Walter Seeley III, 37, was seen walking in the travel lanes of I-95 South in Tinicum Township stabbing himself, according to state police.
When police arrived on scene, they saw Seeley leaning into the windows of an unoccupied paramedic vehicle, according to a news release.
After he resisted arrest they "drive stunned" him twice with a Taser "with little effect," the release said. Drive stunning is when a Taser is put directly to the body, without shooting the projectiles, a state trooper explained today.
After the drive stunning failed, police said they shot Seeley numerous times with the Taser and he was arrested.
Seeley's seeming invincibility may have arose from the PCP that police said they had found in his pocket after he was taken into custody.
Seeley, of Philadelphia, was arrested and charged with public drunkenness, disorderly conduct, walking on a highway, resisting arrest and related charges.
The extent of his injuries is unknown.
