When Cheyenne (Wyo.) Police officers Joshua Thorton and James Womak arrived at the home of Brian Mattert earlier this month on a domestic disturbance call, they found the man covered in white latex paint, reports Wyoming News.com.

Mattert then told the officers, who had their TASERs drawn, "You see all this water-based paint? You shoot me with that and you'll kill me."
