A naked man led Delaware and Pennsylvania State Police on a chase up and down Interstate 95 near Philadelphia. The naked man spent time traveling in the wrong direction on I-95 as well.
Delaware State Police say they received a call around 7:20 p.m. Wednesday concerning a vehicle traveling southbound in the northbound lanes of I-95 in the area of Martin Luther King Boulevard in Wilmington.
Police say the driver, later identified as Kyle R. Merena, refused to stop and continued to travel southbound in the northbound lanes before entering into the Delaware Service Plaza.
Merena then turned around and began traveling I-95 northbound, now in the northbound lanes, still refusing to stop. Merena traveled across the grass median and then continued northbound in the southbound lanes of I-95.
Merena’s SUV finallly came to a stop, but not before striking a Pennsylvania State Police vehicle, which was towed from the scene with minor damage.
Police say Merena, who was completely naked, exited his disabled vehicle and attempted to flee, but was taken in to custody by Pennsylvania Troopers after a short foot pursuit.
Ironically, this event coincided with a Philadelphia police pursuit of a man wanted for multiple homicides. That man is still at large.
