Wichita Police arrested a naked man Thursday morning as he attempted to break into a church.
Several people called 911 and reported that they saw a man wearing only small piles of leaves on his head and near his pelvic area. When police arrived he was trying to get into the All Saints Catholic Church in the 3200 block of East Harry. The 22-year-old man was taken into custody and brought to a Wichita hospital for a mental evaluation.
While at the hospital, police say he battered several employees and was eventually tased by an officer.
The man has since been booked into the Sedgwick County Jail on charges of public nudity and battery.
In the course of the investigation, police discovered that the suspect had also been involved in a rollover accident earlier that same morning.
At about 3:45 a.m., the 22-year-old had been driving eastbound on Lincoln when he lost control on a wet road. The car slid into a land divider and hit a street sign before rolling over. When police arrived, the driver had already walked away and was not seen again until he was found naked later that morning.
