Massachusetts police arrest naked driver

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Police in Massachusetts have arrested a Connecticut man they say got out of his car naked and started jumping and dancing in the street after striking a curb and getting a flat.

Springfield police say an officer on patrol spotted a speeding car with its lights off running stop signs at about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The vehicle failed to negotiate a turn before striking the curb and blowing out the tire.

The driver eventually complied with verbal commands to get on the ground so officers could handcuff him. He was taken to the hospital for an evaluation.

Police say 30-year-old Dereck Dent, of Enfield, Connecticut, faces several driving charges and was wanted on several warrants.

He couldn’t be reached for comment and it wasn’t clear if had hired a lawyer.
