Reports of a naked man in a vehicle parked at the Holiday Inn Harborside shortly before 6 p.m. May 8 brought Port Washington police to the scene.

    An off-duty police officer from another community called in the report, telling a Port officer that his family saw a fat, nude man sitting in the back of a red Jeep that was also occupied by another man, police said.

    When a Port officer arrived at the scene, the off-duty officer told him that the vehicle was leaving the lower parking lot. The Port officer shouted to the driver to stop, but he continued driving, according to police. The window was open, police said.

    As the car passed, the officer looked inside the Jeep and saw a naked man laying in the back seat, police said.

    The officer began following the vehicle in his squad car with its lights and sirens on, but because of the high rate of speed the Jeep was traveling on Franklin Street, the officer discontinued the chase.

    The vehicle turned left from Franklin Street onto Washington Street. Eventually, it drove onto yards in the 200 block of West Main Street, tearing up the lawns, police said.

    The vehicle was stopped in the 900 block of South Spring Street by an Ozaukee County sheriff’s deputy. The naked man was no longer in the vehicle, police said.
    When asked about the naked man, the 38-year-old driver, who is from Milwaukee, initially said he never had a passenger but later told officers he had been driving a fully-clothed woman, according to police.

    The man was cited for reckless driving and damage to property, and police forwarded a request for criminal charges of fleeing an officer to the Ozaukee County District Attorney’s office.
