PETALUMA (AP) — Authorities say a naked man who was running on a Northern California freeway resisted an officer’s attempt to arrest him and had to be subdued with a stun gun.
The California Highway Patrol said 25-year-old Alexander Leonard of Hawthorne, California was taken into custody Sunday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs and resisting arrest.
Sgt. Ross Ingels told the San Francisco Chronicle that Leonard was driving erratically in northbound lanes of Highway 101 in Petaluma before crashing into a guardrail. He said Leonard then got out of a rented pickup truck, took off his clothes and ran on the freeway.
Ingels said when Leonard refused an officer’s demand to stop, the officer used a stun gun on him.
He was treated for minor injuries.
