OCALA (AP) — Authorities say a Florida man was charged with driving under the influence after he was spotted riding his motorcycle naked.

The Marion County deputy was driving on Interstate 75 early Tuesday when he spotted what appeared to be a naked man on a motorcycle. The deputy caught up with 45-year-old J. Dante Krauss at a red light and stopped him.

Capt. Mike Rolls said Krauss could not explain where he was coming from or why he was naked. Rolls said the deputy asked him if he had been drinking, and he answered that he had.

Breathalyzer tests revealed blood alcohol levels above .08, the state’s legal limit to drive.
