A naked man riding an ATV refused to stop for authorities in Missouri on Sunday, prompting an hour-long chase in Kansas City, according to multiple reports.
Police initiated a chase at 2:20 p.m. after getting a report of a suspicious, naked man riding an ATV near 8400 Northeast Sam Ray Road in Kansas City, North, according to the Kansas City Star. Police said the man was suspected of being under the influence of drugs, the newspaper reported.
The man evaded authorities in a field in Kansas City, North, before he found a break in a fence and drove onto Northeast Shoal Creek, according to the Star. He got onto Interstate 435, where he drove south, sometimes into oncoming traffic, the Star reported.
A police helicopter joined the chase, which also took authorities along Missouri Highway 152 and Missouri Highway 210, according to KSHB and the Clay County Sheriff’s Office.
The man, who was not identified, was arrested around 3:45 p.m. after getting off the interstate at Northeast Birmingham Road, according to the Star.
No injuries were reported, KSHB reported.
Police continued to investigate the case Sunday.
