Memphis Area Man Goes on Naked Shooting Spree

DECEMBER 1, 2005 - Posted at 8:28 a.m. CST

GERMANTOWN, TN - A Tennessee man who called police after seeing a naked man firing a gun at commuters says he "couldn't believe it."

Eddie Cox was driving home in suburban Memphis when he saw the man wearing nothing but socks despite temperatures in the 40s.  Cox called police, who came to the scene and arrested Glen Higgs.

Higgs now faces charges of reckless endangerment, indecent exposure, firing a weapon and public intoxication.  Officers found a revolver in a nearby yard.

Authorities say Higgs also was treated for an injury he suffered earlier in the day when he jumped from the second story of his home.
