ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a shirtless man on LSD was
stunned with a Taser several times after trying to enter SeaWorld
Orlando without paying.

An Orange County deputy reports seeing 23-year-old Nicholas
Casanova trying to enter the park Tuesday afternoon.

When the deputy approached, Casanova left, but then he came back about five minutes later.

Casanova and the deputy began struggling, and the deputy shot Casanova with a Taser multiple times.

A report shows that Casanova swung a trash can lid at the deputy
and tried to jump in a water feature before he was finally
restrained.

A blood test performed later showed he had LSD in his system.

Casanova faces multiple charges, including battery on a law-enforcement officer.
