An overnight high-speed chase in the capital city ends with an awkward arrest for officers -- a naked man behind the wheel.
The pursuit ended in a collision just before 4:00 Sunday morning near the intersection of Medgar Evers Boulevard and Martin Luther King Drive.
Jackson Police Department Assistant Chief Ron Sampson said police were alerted to an SUV hitting two vehicles after leaving a nightclub in the Medgar Evers area.
A witness said the SUV with decal artwork was traveling about 70 miles per hour down Martin Luther King Drive. The fleeing SUV then crashed into a white SUV.
James Ford witnessed the crash and said he was most shocked when officers pulled the suspect from the wrecked SUV.
"When they pulled him, out he was butt naked," Ford said. "I've never seen anything like it."

It's great to be a cop sometimes, isn't it? You get called to the bar after a drunk patron rams into a couple of other vehicles and flees. After a short high speed chase he wrecks into an SUV and when you pull his sorry ass out of the car, he's naked. Dude! Here's more on the story from WLBT:
Ya think? Especially in Canada where, I hear, it sometimes gets cold in the winter. Here's more from Edmonton Sun:
A woman in her 30s is in hospital after being found running along Highway 401 naked early today near Ingersoll, Ont.
Police were called just after 7 a.m. by drivers who saw the woman. Paramedics were called after motorists gave the woman initial assistance.
Provincial police Const. Dennis Harwood says the woman is being treated in hospital for mild hypothermia and mental health issues.
