WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Authorities say a naked man who led law enforcement on a chase through Delaware and Pennsylvania has been charged with driving under the influence of a controlled substance.

The News Journal of Wilmington reports Delaware State Police began pursuing a wrong-way driver Wednesday night who was later determined to be 29-year-old Kyle R. Merena.

Authorities say Merena fled into Pennsylvania where police had laid out spike strips to help stop him. Pennsylvania State Police say Merena’s car hit the strips and its tires were deflated, but the car only stopped when it crashed into a trooper’s cruiser near the Philadelphia International Airport.

They say a naked Merena then fled the car and was arrested. He’s also charged with reckless endangerment among other offenses. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.

Not local, but clearly shows how bad the times news reporting is when they run articles from other sources. The times news article would be a Larry Neff special...a pic of a cop, and written to the effect of "a drunk naked man was chased by the police. no details are available at this time, will update later" and then never updated.
