Police: Naked man steals beer, hijacks bus

Thursday, July 10, 2008

LAS VEGAS -- Maybe he lost his shirt at a casino. Police in Las Vegas say they arrested a naked man who stole a beer and then hijacked a bus several miles northeast of the Strip.

A police spokesman said the man fled from a convenience store when a police officer arrived to investigate a report of a shoplifter Tuesday.

The suspect allegedly punched in a back window of a Citizens Area Transit bus, climbed aboard, forced the driver off, drove the bus about 200 yards and then jumped out of the moving vehicle.

A police officer climbed aboard the bus and stopped the vehicle.

Police say the man was arrested on felony charges and given clothes and a mental evaluation.
