High on meth, tasered and fighting off 15 cops…all while having a tug.

An Oregon man who was high on meth reportedly fought off more than a dozen police officers in a Salem bar while allegedly publicly masturbating.

Andrew Frey, 37, made a series of outbursts and then began masturbating in Iggy Bar & Grill on Saturday, The Oregonian reports.

Police were unable to subdue Frey with a Taser. It took 15 officers to finally take him into custody, officials said. 

Frey later reportedly told authorities that he took methamphetamine and couldn’t remember the obscene incident, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s office.

The arrest at the bar was just the end of a string of bizarre incidents. Around 1 p.m. Saturday, Frey called a locksmith and then reportedly refused to pay the man for his services.

He then wandered to Brook’s Market and refused to leave, the New York Daily News notes. He had to be escorted off the property by an employee. That’s when he stumbled into Iggy’s Bar. The bartender says Frey exposed his genitals and started masturbating at the bar.

When a Marion County deputy responded to a call at the scene, Frey allegedly resisted arrest. The deputy Tasered Frey, but it had no effect. He began fighting the deputy, who called for backup.
