Officials: Mississippi man arrested after nude foot chase

(AP) — A man who allegedly stripped naked as he ran from deputies in Mississippi has been arrested on drug charges.
Hancock County sheriff’s deputies saw Ryan Millet arguing with a woman, Misty Quiroz, at a gas station in Bay St. Louis on Wednesday and approached the couple, Chief Deputy Jeremy Skinner told The Sun Herald. The deputies started searching their car after Quiroz allegedly admitted to having marijuana in the vehicle.
Skinner said that’s when Millet, who appeared to be under the influence of drugs, ran away and started taking off his clothes. Deputies chased him down and later used a stun gun to arrest him and bring him back to the gas station, with his clothes in hand, Skinner said.
“He was actually caught naked, so that’s how he gets escorted back,” he added.
Millet and Quiroz were booked into Hancock County jail on drug charges after deputies found marijuana and methamphetamine in their car, Skinner said. It was not immediately clear if they have lawyers who could comment on their behalf.
