Dearborn Police responded to reports of a naked man yelling and banging on a residential door around 12:24 a.m. New Year's Day, in the area of Theisen Street and Blesser Avenue.

While on route, dispatch advised the officers that the man, 31, had gotten into his vehicle and was intentionally crashing into public and private property.

By the time police arrived the man had parked his silver 1999 Pontiac, which had heavy front-end damage rendering it undrivable.

However, the tracks in the snow showed that the man had knocked down two stop signs, struck a fire hydrant, and drove onto the front lawn of a residence on Theisen, striking a lawn ornament, before coming to a stop on Blesser Avenue, east of Theisen.

Police later discovered that the 911 caller was the man's brother, and that he had come to his house unannounced, banging on the door. When his brother wouldn't answer, the man began breaking the door, causing damage to the glass, frame and door itself.

When police asked the man why he was damaging property, he responded by saying he became angry and was driving to try and "hit things."

The man was arrested for three counts of Reckless Driving and one count Damage to Property. His bond was set at $500, and his brother chose not to press charges against him.

No explanation was given for why the man was naked.

The naked drunken man was lucky not to be shot by the brother, aka the African American girl who was drunk and also knocking down doors etc. although the girl was a minor and should not have been drinking in the first place or driving, and leaving the scene of an accident. Whoever provided her the alcohol is in deep trouble. I wonder if this drunk guy had any connection to another naked man that went to a drive thru Wendy's a year or so back, and happened to be a Lion's asst. coach.? Hopefully, the Lions have let that character go.

Lee, put the bottle down, you're rambling.

Lee, No, naked Lion coach is long gone from team. This was indecent to send Jenny Kalish out to cover a naked man! Too nice a girl for that.

I bet naked man was angry because he ran out of quarters at the coin op laundry.
