Memphis Police Arrest Man Who was Shot, Then Stripped

MEMPHIS, TN - Police in Memphis say they arrested a man who crashed his car, got shot by a homeowner, broke a restaurant window, then stripped to his underwear.

It happened early today and police say the man got shot when he banged on the front door of a house, then kicked in one of the windows.

The suspect wasn't immediately identified.  He was taken to the Regional Medical Center and police say they'll charge him when he's released.

Officers say when they found the man, he had stripped to his shirt and undershorts.

Witness Lisa Fuqua saw it happen and told our sister station WMC-TV walking around in his underwear made the man obvious to police.  Fuqua says the man "had to be on some high-powered something."
