Ronald L. Divel resisted arrest just to feel a Taser (video)
Meet Ronald Divel, a Frederick man who allegedly refused to be captured by police until he was hit by Taser probes. No, he wasn't trying to escape; he just wanted to know what it felt like to have thousands of volts of electricity flowing through his body.
Late Sunday night, a Frederick County Police officer was waved down by a man who said his red tractor had been stolen. According to court documents, the officer found Divel and an underage girl driving the tractor through a cornfield. The officer chased them on foot, and when he caught up, Divel jumped off the tractor and resisted arrest, at which point he was Tased, bro. Asked by a sheriff's deputy why he resisted arrest, Divel explained that he wanted to know what being Tased felt like.

Or, you could simply ask John Kerry a question:
