A man came into the home of three students on East University Boulevard early Sunday morning, refused to leave and then stole a beer, reports stated.

Police arrived around 4:30 a.m. and saw one of the students trying to push the man off of the porch.

Police asked the man to stop and the man began to leave the porch. Police told the man to stop and he began to walk faster.

Police saw a shiny, blunt object in the man's left hand. Police pulled out a Taser and the man stopped. The man then set down a 12-ounce can of beer, reports stated.

One of the students said the man had entered the house through a side door, which had been unlocked.

The man had gone to the table and picked up an open can of beer. The man had started to drink the beer and was singing.

The student said he and his roommates had asked the man to leave several times.

The students then tried to push the man out of their house, but he kept coming back in, reports stated.

The student said the man had told them he wouldn't leave unless the students gave him money.

The man kept yelling curses at police.

Police arrested the man for stealing a can of beer and for criminal trespassing, reports stated.
