UNION CITY, Tenn. (AP) -

Law enforcement officials in Obion and Weakley counties will probably remember one recent car chase for a while.

That's because the man they eventually arrested over the weekend was not only driving no more than 20 miles per hour, but he was naked.

According to the Union City Daily Messenger, authorities received a call Sunday morning about a motorist driving erratically in Obion County.

The driver was 29-year-old James Joseph Bell, who refused to stop for deputies and led them on a low-speed chase into Weakley County where he was eventually intercepted and arrested.

Authorities say Bell was under the influence of drugs and was naked.

He was being held in the Weakley County Jail and faces charges in both counties.
