Cops: Man Caught Running Naked On LIE After Crashing Car

The man was seen streaking down the highway in the buff Thursday morning, police said.

It's not a sight you see every day on an average day on the Long Island Expressway.

According to New York State Police, a man was arrested Thursday morning after he was caught running in the buff down the Long Island Expressway, just east of exit 70, County Road 111.

"One of my units was driving by and saw him running down the highway naked," New York State Trooper Richard Gantt said Thursday.

According to Gantt, the man was taking off his clothes and streaking down the center median of the highway in Brookhaven Town at 11:50 a.m. after crashing his car into the center median, despite the icy cold temperatures.

The man, 46, completely disrobed in the troopers' presence, police said.

"He decided to take off his clothes," Gantt said. 

The man caused quite a stir. One man tweeted, "Just saw a naked man get tackled on the expressway."

The man was apprehended, but charges were not immediately revealed. He was taken to Stony Brook Hospital for evaluation.

HEY LYNCH, ARE YOU RELATED TO THE 495 STREAKER? SURE SOUNDS LIKE IT. I DON'T HAVE COMPASSION FOR SOMEONE WHO ENDANGERS THE LIVES OF OTHERS WHEN DRIVING A MOTOR VEHICLE, UNLESS THERE IS A MEDICAL CONDITION. AS FAR AS BEING INNOCENT AND FRAMED, THERE DOESN'T APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN ANYONE ELSE INVOLVED, EXCEPT HIM. HOW WAS HE FRAMED AND BY WHOM?

Not many places to grab a naked guy to apprehend.

Maybe the New York State Police could help the Suffolk County Police in finding the murderer or murderers of a dozen women thrown on our beaches!!!!! They have not solved one yet in years and certainly could use help from the FBI and Scotland Yard.

To cindi sansone-braff: I read your comment above. You make me laugh. You should have seen this coming since you are a psychic. A fake a phony and a fraud. Cindi Sansone-Braff February 28, 2014 at 10:42 AM Why doesn't anyone have the courage to back their opinions by using their full names? Kindness matters. Facts count. Hiding behind fake names and using your words like weapons to attack everyone and everything is not a solution to the problems that plague our world, but just part of the problem. Cyber-bullying is a 21st Century scourge. Please have the courage to put your name where your mouth is. Surely you jest.
Cindi Sansone-Braff February 28, 2014 at 07:14 PM
To Paul -- a true gentleman in every sense of the word. Yes, I saw it coming and yes, again, have the courage to use your full name when writing libelous words about another.

@Hamburger: I heard he did also, and told the cops he was looking to get a hamburger.

On a positive note if this is the worst thing happening life is good. Until of course the food riots begin

@Cindi Sansone Braff: Sounds like a "fake" name to me, but if it is real, what does it say about you- nothing, a birth name bestowed upon you by your parents. On the other hand, my screen name "Knee Jerk", actually tells you something about me. Sort of like "Crazy Horse" or "Kimosabi" or "Stands With A Fist." Lighten up & show a little imagination, pick your own "handle" and stop beating that real-name "dead horse".

Ok, the productive responses have ceased and it is time to shut this mother down. Frankly, this was a sad event. I'm sure the perpetrator has issues, and this conversation needs to end.

I hope he got the help he needed. .. and I'm happy the cops showed up before he was hurt.
TJ Eckleburg March 01, 2014 at 01:00 AM
we are still waiting for bob's "productive response"...the little guy thinks he controls the blog.
bob young March 01, 2014 at 01:14 AM
TJ you are the smallest amongst us. Please keep your small responses to yourself. You are the only one that finds them amusing. BTW, feel free to knock on my door and tell me anything mano a mano.

Look at the State Trooper car in the photo: roof shows "3K10" while plate shows "3K18". Either they can't put the right plate on the right car or some other shenanigans are going on here. And these are the guys who determine drunk or sober?
Victor March 17, 2014 at 04:08 PM
He was simply remaking the "We're Streaking" scene in the movie 'Old School'...nothing wrong with that.
