Naked Ninja Video: David Martin was High on Spice
David Martin: The Naked Ninja of Indianapolis
A naked guy screaming at cars and lashing out at pedestrians is the sort of thing that attracts law enforcement attention. Indianapolis resident David Martin found this out the hard way on May 20, 2012.
However, when the police attempted to subdue Martin with their tasers, they found themselves re-enacting a scene from Crank: High Voltage. David Martin was barely affected by the tasers at all. After emitting a high-pitched scream, Martin slapped one of the cops in the face, and then executed a back flip to escape. Only with the help of a bold bystander were the police able to subdue Martin further up the block.
Was David Martin high on bath salts? No, but apparently he later told police that he was high on Spice, a brand of synthetic cannabis sold as an incense product. This sort of behavior also attracts phonecam attention: you can see David Martin in action below. As the narrator notes, "this guy's like a ninja!"
The video hit YouTube a month after David Martin's naked encounter with the police and the pavement.
