Amid a stay-at-home order, a Chicago man took Indiana police on a chase where he ended up naked

Frankfort, IN – A Chicago man is in jail after leading police on a chase that ended with him lying in mud with no clothes on.

Police were called at about 1:10 a.m. March 27 over a report of a silver Honda that was driving recklessly, according to WLFI.

Francis Joseph, 26, was driving about 40 mph and swerving and did not have his headlights on, WLFI reported.

A police chase started when Indiana State Police troopers tried to pull over Joseph. The chase went through two counties and then Joseph tried to drive through a field and became stuck. The Journal & Courier reported the chase lasted an hour.

Joseph got out of his car and started to run with only one shoe on, according to WLFI. Police brought in a K9 that tracked Joseph and found him.

Police said Joseph was laying on his back naked in the mud, according to the Journal & Courier. He didn’t give police a reason he took off his clothes. Police said his clothes were found nearby.

Joseph was taken to jail and charged with resisting law enforcement, operating while intoxicated endangerment, reckless driving, criminal recklessness and violation of local travel advisory, according to WLFI.

The state of Indiana has been under a “stay at home” order since March 24. It lasts through April 6. The order states that residents “should only travel if it is for your health or essential work.”

CNN reported that about half of Americans are under a stay-home-order. There are 22 states that have restricted movement with stay-at-home orders as of March 27, according to CNN.

I would say usual suspect but if I say usual suspect I'll just get myself in trouble so I won't say usual suspect this time. Now next time I just might say usual suspect.

Would be surprised but I remember a call yrs ago when there was a woman who called and said her maid said someone was breaking in. When we arrived the maid was nowhere to be found. The next door neighbor called saying someone was trying to get in there basement door. We went to investigate and find the rather hefty maid at the bottom of the steps naked. She said she'd taken off her cloths so they couldn't see her. Turned out she'd had a mix-up with her prescription drugs.
