Naked man steals truck in Ala.

ATHENS, Ala. (AP) - Limestone County Sheriff's Department officials say they've arrested a naked man who allegedly stole a truck and drove it into a ditch.

Authorities say the in-the-buff bandit stole the truck Thursday in Ardmore.

Chief Investigator Stanley McNatt said the man was shouting "somebody's trying to kill me" when he appeared in an Ardmore neighborhood.

The chief added that the man jumped in the back of a truck and broke the window to the cab. The man's name has not been released.

McNatt said the driver abandoned the truck, and the naked man drove away with the vehicle.

A man was arrested a short time later after the truck ran into a ditch. He is being held for observation at a Decatur hospital.
