Oregon State Police troopers used a stun gun to arrest a Halsey man Sunday after a bizarre pursuit along Interstate 5. Troopers responded to a complaint of an erratic driver about 9:30 a.m. south of Salem. A trooper tried to stop the vehicle, which was weaving in the northbound traffic lanes and traveling at speeds that fluctuated between 30 and 80 mph, police said.
At one point, the driver appeared to try to ram a disabled vehicle on the freeway shoulder, police said. The driver also threw a baby’s car seat and several pieces of clothing out of the window as he drove, police said. With police behind him, the motorist allegedly tried to drive through the freeway’s dirt center median, but became stuck. The driver then got out of the car and took off his shorts, leaving him completely naked, police said.
Police said the man dropped to his knees and screamed while refusing troopers’ directions. To keep the man from running into traffic and to gain compliance, a trooper shot him with a Taser stun gun.

Along the way, this guy not only tossed his clothes out the window, but also a car seat. A car seat? In the end he got stuck in the median, jumped out and took off his shorts, leaving nothing to the imagination. Of course at that point, the cops had not choice but to taser him. Watch your aim officers! Here's more from The Register Guard:
I suppose if you're going to do naked and stupid, you might as well go all the way, like this guy in Michigan. Early Easter Sunday morning, a maintenance worker found this guy wearing nothing but a smile AND in the lady's room. The worker call the cops and when they showed up, Mr. Naked tried to pretend to be a woman. When that didn't work they ordered him out only to find that he had left all his clothes in the car. The report does not say where the cops found the cocaine, but let's hope he had it in his hands. (Chicago Tribune)
