MASSILLON Police arrested a nude Akron man when they pulled him over for speeding early Monday morning.
The 23-year-old man was arrested at 2:50 a.m. after he was pulled over in the southbound lanes of state Route 21 and police saw him “making furtive movements, reaching from side to side and under the driver’s seat,” Stark County Jail records said.
That behavior and the fact that he was “completely naked” caused the officer to call for additional assistance, the jail records said.
The man was removed from his vehicle after he refused to get out and the police K-9 Inca indicated a presence of illegal drugs inside. Officers searched and found a bag containing an undisclosed amount of meth and four pipes used to smoke it.
He was jailed on charges of aggravated drug possession, operating a vehicle while impaired, driving under suspension, a marked lanes violation, failure to use turn and stop signals and possession of drug abuse instruments.
He was later released on his own recognizance pending a Massillon Municipal Court hearing.
Summit County court records show he was arrested Dec. 16 on charges of methamphetamine possession and possession of drug abuse instruments, but those charges were dropped on Jan. 4.
