Last night it was a drunk man riding a horse onto a highway in Long Beach, and now it’s a naked man riding an ATV onto a Kansas City highway.

This one actually involved a fairly lengthy police pursuit, and involved the man riding the wrong way on the highway.

Here’s a video report from KCTV-5 Kansas City (CBS affiliate), followed by more on the story from The Kansas City Star:


The man eluded officers for a while in a field by Northeast Shoal Creek Parkway and Missouri 152 in Kansas City, North.

He eventually found a break in a fence and led police south on Northeast Shoal Creek toward the Kansas City Regional Police Academy. The man then circled back and got onto Interstate 435, where he led police south, heading the wrong way in the northbound lanes.

The man drove the ATV along the shoulder and in the median, and at times into oncoming traffic.

At Missouri 210, the man was still in the northbound lanes but circled back, heading the correct direction on the ramp to westbound Missouri 210.

It should come as no surprise that Clay County police suspect the man was “under the influence of drugs.” They finally caught up to him and arrested him at the location of the old Sam’s Town Casino near Interstate 435 and 210 Highway.
