Naked man leads police on 40 minute chase

MAYFIELD, Ky. -- When police went to a 21-year-old Western Kentucky man's house to serve a warrant, he decided to run for it, even though he was naked.

William McCampbell led police on a 40-minute foot chase before he was caught.

McCampbell was originally charged with contempt of court and after the Monday chase in Mayfield, other charges were added.  They're: fleeing from police, indecent exposure, criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.

Mayfield Assistant Police Chief Steve Hendley says as McCampbell ran through town, people aided police by pointing in the direction he had streaked.

Hendley said people were obviously shocked to see a naked man running down the street at eleven o'clock in the morning.
