Kansas City, MO (AP) – Authorities say a naked man has been arrested after fleeing on an all-terrain vehicle and driving the wrong way on a northern Kansas City highway.
Police say the man is suspected of being under the influence of drugs during the Sunday afternoon chase. It began with the man eluding officers in a field. After finding a break in a fence, the man eventually made his way onto Interstate 435, where he occasionally drove into oncoming traffic. He was captured after exiting the interstate.
Melissa Testrake told KMBC-TV she thought she was “dreaming’’ when she saw the spectacle unfold while returning from a basketball tournament with two boys in her car.
Capt. Will Akin of the Clay County Sheriff’s Office acknowledged it “might be comical’’ but stressed it also was “very dangerous.’’
