WAVERLY, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a Nebraska man was walking around naked on Interstate 80 before damaging a passing vehicle.

The Nebraska State Patrol says 30-year-old Samson Wilcinot of Lincoln was arrested Monday on Interstate 80 near Waverly.

Troopers say they received a report Monday of a man walking on and off the interstate's eastbound lanes. Wilcinot is accused of physically hitting a vehicle that slowed down to help him.

The driver of that vehicle pulled off the interstate into a weigh station area. The vehicle sustained more than $1,500 in damage.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1skGFsY ) Wilcinot was cited on suspicion of felony criminal mischief and ticketed for public indecency and being a pedestrian on the interstate. Court records do not list an attorney.
