A naked Las Vegas man was caught on camera brawling with a cop before taking off in his patrol truck – before crashing it into a group of bystanders.
Las Vegas police responded to reports at around 11 pm on Tuesday that there was a ‘suicidal’ man in the road.
The man – who was completely naked – was spotted by concerned spectators at the intersection of Blue Diamond Road and Buffalo Drive.
Shocking video footage caught the moment the bold man hopped into the empty driver’s seat of the police truck – leaving the arresting officer scrambling on the ground.
The unidentified nude man then sped away in the car as the sirens continued to blare while the cop tried to run after the much quicker vehicle.
According to police, the man started a fight with the officer at the scene – which ended with the suspect stealing the marked patrol vehicle.

After his mad getaway attempt – the naked troublemaker slammed the stolen car into another person’s vehicle.
The collision happened during the car chase that followed the suspect’s abrupt vehicle theft.
The unlucky passengers in the car that got hit amidst the chaos were rushed to hospital – but their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening, according to a News 3 report.
Police said the suspect was taken into custody after finally being caught during his mad dash.
The officer involved in the fight reported minor injuries and didn’t require a hospital trip.
The charges the naked man faces have not been released.
Las Vegas is no stranger to nudity – in July, a streaker was arrested after gyrating naked on poker tables at Harrah’s in Las Vegas, leaving one woman ‘dry heaving.’
Brian Danilczyk, 35, is facing charges of disorderly conduct, battery and five counts of indecent exposure after he was arrested on Sunday.
Danilczyk, who is originally from West Babylon, New York, was captured on camera standing on top of a table in Harrah’s Casino completely naked.
