A man was arrested in Virginia after getting into a car crash, taking off his clothes and jumping on a vehicle near Dulles International Airport, causing major delays during the Tuesday afternoon rush hour, police said.
Officers arrived about 3:30 p.m. at Route 28 and Frying Pan Road after a naked man was reported running in the area, Fairfax County police said.
An investigation showed that Jose Gonzalez Flores, 32, of Sterling was involved in a crash with two vehicles while traveling south on Route 28, also known as Sully Road, in his pickup truck, police said in a statement Wednesday.
Gonzalez Flores then allegedly assaulted one of the drivers involved in the crash before returning to his truck and throwing items onto the road. Police said he then stripped off his clothing and ran into traffic.
While on the road, Gonzalez Flores jumped onto a passing truck and broke a window before leaving the scene, according to the statement. He was arrested in a drainage ditch on Dulles Airport property with the assistance of officers from the Virginia State Police, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority and the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, police said.
Gonzalez Flores was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening. No one else was injured during the disturbance, police said.
After his release from the hospital, police said, Gonzalez Flores will be served with warrants charging him with two counts of felony hit and run, throwing an object at a moving vehicle, destruction of property, assault and battery, indecent exposure, disorderly conduct and possession of marijuana.
Route 28 was blocked during the incident, and delays stretched for up to three miles, according to authorities.
