Police shot a stun gun at the man who was recently accused of having sex in a North Charleston Home Depot shed after he was found with drugs in a hotel, according to investigators.

Shaun Ramon Bowden, 32, never showed up to his court date to face the charges of indecent exposure and disorderly conduct, stemming from the Aug. 28 incident at the store on Northwoods Boulevard, according to court records.

North Charleston Police ran into him on Friday when they were investigating possible suspicious drug activity at the Quality Inn and Suites on Northside Drive, according to an incident report.

When an officer attempted to frisk Bowden he ran off and was chased by the officer, the report stated. The officer warned Bowden he would shoot him with the stun gun if he didn’t stop. After ignoring the officer’s demands, the officer fired his stun gun, striking Bowden and causing him to fall on his face, causing abrasions, according to the report.

He was arrested on the bench warrant for indecent exposure and disorderly conduct and also charged with resisting arrest, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute cocaine base and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
