Officials arrest naked man who led them on a slow pursuit

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a naked man who they say drove into a chemical plant site and led deputies on a slow-moving chase.

News outlets report that deputies arrested 38-year-old Charles Cooper on Sunday on counts including obscenity and flight from an officer.

According to an East Baton Rouge Parish report, Cooper pulled into the grounds of the Formosa Plastics chemical plant in Baton Rouge wearing only socks and a T-shirt. Deputies say he screamed for someone to help him, claiming there was someone else inside the vehicle. The report says no one else could be seen in or around his SUV.

Cooper then drove off, leading deputies on a slow-moving pursuit. He finally stopped after deputies blocked his SUV and was arrested.
