COLLEGE STATION – A man who was naked and high on PCP when he attacked a police officer was sentenced to 8 years in prison.

According to the arrest report, police were called to an apartment complex at 1501 Valley View on November 27, 2013 for a naked man on PCP who was assaulting people.

Police say the apartment was in disarray. Furniture had been overturned and other property damaged. They say when Thomas Earl Richardson came out of a back bedroom, completely naked, he punched an officer in his left eye. The officer then tased Richardson.

Richardson pleaded guilty June 12 to assault on a public servant. He was sentenced Thursday.
