Naked 63-year old man stopped for speeding in Phippsburg

The Associated Press

PHIPPSBURG — A 63-year-old Maine man is facing charges after allegedly leading police on a low-speed chase and ramming a police cruiser while driving without any clothes on.

The Sagadahoc County Sheriff's Department says Cary Furrow of Knox refused to stop for police Tuesday afternoon for driving erratically in Phippsburg.

Chief Deputy Brett Strout told The Times Record of Brunswick that Furrow drove as much as 20 mph under the speed limit and didn't stop even after running over a spike mat. When officers eventually took Furrow into custody, Strout said he "wasn't wearing any clothes, whatsoever."

Furrow faces charges of refusing to stop for police, driving to endanger and passing a road block. Strout said alcohol and drugs are not considered a factor in the case.
