Wichita, Kan. -- The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating a bizarre incident that happened on Interstate 135 Saturday afternoon.

It happened shortly after 4:30 Saturday afternoon in the northbound lanes of the interstate near the 1st Street exit. The Kansas Highway Patrol says it began when the driver of a northbound car lost a tire and stopped in the center lane.

Trooper Ryan Tauer says he was southbound on the interstate when he saw the stopped vehicle and thought there had been an accident. When he approached the scene, he discovered that the driver had gotten out of his car and ran south, while stripping off his clothes.

Trooper Tauer says the man was combative with officers who took him into custody. It's believed that the man had consumed a large amount of drugs.

He was transported to the hospital in serious condition. No one was hurt in the incident.

The interstate was closed at Kellogg for about 20 minutes, but has since reopened.
