The naked ape

This is a clear case of naked aggression!

Naked man causes ‘disturbance’ in business then attacks police car

Springfield, Missouri-A man is in custody after deputies say he walked nude into a Greene County business, fled, then attacked a pursuing deputy’s patrol car, according to a news release.

The 30-year-old man, who was not identified, could face charges of second-degree robbery, assault on a law enforcement officer and felony property damage for the incident.

According to the release, the naked man walked into a business at 4220 West Willard Road shortly after 9 a.m. this morning, “causing a disturbance.”

The man fled when officers were called, but was located a short time later on a nearby Ozark Greenways trail. By the time a deputy found the man, he had put on a pair of shorts, said Greene County Chief Deputy Jim Arnott.

On the deputy, the man began to attack his patrol car, the release said, “then began assaulting a citizen while trying to forcibly take his vehicle in the parking area of the walking trail.”“He was really wired,” said Arnott. “He attacked the hood of the patrol car, then tried to break the window in on the patrol car.” The deputy used a Taser to subdue the man, who is believed to have been under the influence of an hallucinogenic drug.

Deputies have forwarded the case to the Greene County Prosecutor’s Office.
