Police: Man was naked, high when he attacked


Police were able eventually to place him on his back and Tasered him at least four more times before the four officers handcuffed him.

“He continued to display unrealistic strength and made every attempt to break free of our grasp and continue to fight,” Dellaria wrote.

Police determined that Anderson was at least under the influence of alcohol and quite possibly cocaine and hallucination-inducing drugs at the time of the alleged assault. Anderson was eventually sedated and transported to Anna Jaques Hospital for treatment. Dellaria and Thurlow were also transported to the Newburyport hospital having been doused with Anderson’s blood, according to Dellaria’s report.

According to Dellaria, Anderson’s kicking punched several holes in the wall of the trailer. Previous to the police arrival, he had punched out several of the windows with his fists. It is estimated he caused more than $1,000 worth of damage to the trailer.

The other man in the fight, who suffered a facial contusion, was not charged.
