TARPON SPRING, Fla. (AP) — A southwest Florida man is facing several charges after authorities say he ran naked around a golf course and sideswiped a deputy’s car during a police chase.

Authorities said the unidentified man was running naked around a Tarpon Spring golf course early Tuesday morning.

Pasco Sheriff’s Office deputies caught up with the suspect after he allegedly went into a convenience store and assaulted an employee. Authorities said he then jumped into his van and fled as deputies chased him. He allegedly sideswiped a patrol car during the chase.

Deputies eventually stopped the van. The suspect faces several charges including battery and aggravated fleeing to elude.

It’s not clear why he wasn’t wearing clothes.
