It's not a sight you see every day on an average day on the Long Island Expressway.
According to New York State Police, a man was arrested Thursday morning after he was caught running in the buff down the Long Island Expressway, just east of exit 70, County Road 111.
"One of my units was driving by and saw him running down the highway naked," New York State Trooper Richard Gantt said Thursday.
According to Gantt, the man was taking off his clothes and streaking down the center median of the highway in Brookhaven Town at 11:50 a.m. after crashing his car into the center median, despite the icy cold temperatures.
The man, 46, completely disrobed in the troopers' presence, police said.
"He decided to take off his clothes," Gantt said.
The man caused quite a stir. One man tweeted, "Just saw a naked man get tackled on the expressway."
The man was apprehended, but charges were not immediately revealed. He was taken to Stony Brook Hospital for evaluation.
