ARLINGTON, Va. — Patrons at a restaurant in Clarendon spotted a naked man who hopped in a car and drove off before being Tasered by police.

It happened during the All American Bar Crawl on Saturday when a man stripped inside Goody's pizza before leading police on a high speed chase.

The Arlington County Sheriff's Office released the man's name on Sunday. He has been identified as 22-year-old Charles T. Mack II.

Arlington police say they pursued Mack through nearby neighborhoods after he ran out of Goody's pizza and into a car.

Eventually police say Mack drove the wrong way onto Wilson Boulevard, smashed into two cars and was eventually stopped at Wilson Boulevard and North Highland Street.

Police say officers used a Taser to subdue the Mack, who was taken to Virginia Hospital Center and then to jail.

He has been charged with DWI, narcotics possession, disregarding police commands and three separate hit and run charges.
