17-year-old Nicholas Haviaras was arrested after Michigan police found him lying completely naked in the middle of a street while apparently high on LSD.
Police said that the boy also jumped on the hood of their patrol car and broke out the windshield with his fists.
Haviaras is charged with one count of resisting/obstructing police and one count of malicious destruction of police property, both felony charges.
Waterford Township Police Chief Dan McCaw said that the whole thing started after his officers got a call around 3:15 a.m. Friday.
Police found Haviaras lying on his back in the street when they approached him. When officers attempted to speak with him, he became agitated and reportedly began pounding on the hood of the officer’s patrol car.
McCaw said officers subdued the youth with a Taser.
Witnesses at the scene allegedly told officers that Haviaras was on drugs. Later, McCaw said the teen told investigators he took “blotter acid,” a form of the hallucinogen.
Police say that Haviaras is from Pennsylvania. A district judge ordered him held in the Oakland County jail on a $25,000 cash bond.

During his court appearance Reardon accused police of making things up.
“They barely had enough to arrest me, and they were going to let me go,” he told the judge.

Police in Scottsdale, Arizona, are trying to figure out why a man stripped naked, carjacked a woman, and then sped through Shea Boulevard causing a multi-car crash.
At around 1:30 p.m., there was an initial accident at Via de Ventura and Hayden.
Police say the driver, identified as 45-year-old John Brigham, got out of his car and started acting erratically.
He stripped naked and jumped on top of the roof of another car.
“He was yelling and chanting,” Scottsdale Sgt. Mark Clark said.
Investigators say Brigham then carjacked a woman who was driving a blue Toyota Prius. He then took off. The victim in the second car was taken to the hospital in serious condition.
Police believe the suspect drove northbound on Hayden and then caused a second crash eastbound on Shea between State Road 101 and 90th Street. There were five vehicles involved in the second crash.
It’s possible Brigham was driving the wrong way and at very high speeds, police said.
The wife of the man driving a white pick-up truck who was involved in the second crash said her husband saw the suspect swerved into his lane and hit him head on.
“He got out naked running all over the place trying to get into other people’s cars,” she said.
Brigham was ejected from the Prius, and as witnesses described, he continued attempting to carjack other drivers.
“He actually observed the suspect still naked trying to carjack two other vehicles,” said Clark referring to an officer who was one of the first to respond.
“When he called and said he was hit by a naked man in a Prius I thought it had to be a joke,” added the wife of the man driving the pick-up truck.
At the second crash, there were four injuries. Two of them were life-threatening. One of the injuries was a pregnant female driving a white Lexus.
Brigham, who wasn’t seriously injured, was taken into custody without resisting arrest. He was also taken to the hospital. Police are trying to figure out why the suspect did what he did.
Based on witness accounts, police believe Brigham’s behaviour may be linked to drugs or mental instability.
Once he is handed over to Scottsdale police, he could face charges of carjacking, robbery and leaving the scene of a hit-and-run.
A Zimbabwean magistrate has ruled that two self-confessed witches who claim to have flown on a winnowing basket (rusero) must undergo medical and psychiatric examinations.
Prosecutors said on Thursday that Rosemary Kamanga, 48, and Esnath Maodza, 56, who were arrested earlier this month after they were found naked in the yard of a home in the town of Chinhoyi, 110 kilometres (70 miles) northeast of Harare, have been charged under witchcraft laws carrying the penalty of a fine.
hey also face indecent exposure charges. In local belief, the flat, traditional hand-held winnowing basket is equivalent to a witch’s broomstick in Western fable.
The magistrate said the court would reconvene on July 11 to hear evidence from the medical report and the testimony of traditional leaders.
The women claimed the threshing basket – which witches are said to use for transport – “ditched” them in the yard after a naked night ritual nearby.
They were discovered by Eneresi Mufunga, 55, who told how she woke up at 4AM after “a voice” told her that “something was amiss”.
The devout Christian, who keeps “holy water” in her home, said she began sprinkling her house with the liquid and noticed the naked frame of a woman crawling out of the door of her bedroom on all fours.
The woman later stood up and “appeared tongue-tied”. Mufunga said she then heard screams metres away, coming from a grass and pole bathroom.
She investigated and found a second woman, also stark naked.
At the time of their arrest, a police spokesman said the two women confessed to being witches.

On Sunday, a pizza delivery woman left her 1999 Pontiac Grand Am where it had stalled in rising floodwaters following a severe storm.
Later that night, neighbors witnessed a completely naked Larry Norman Hill hitting the car with what is believed to be a golf club; a gold driver, specifically. He allegedly knocked the side-view mirror off, caved in the roof, ripped a headlight out and opened a door and let the water come pouring into the interior.
One neighbor yelled at 57-year-old Hill, telling him to stop and asking him how he would like it if someone did that to his car, to which he responded that he had laid claim to it and that it was now his.
On Monday, the owner of the vehicle returned to reclaim it, witnessed the damage, and called the sheriff’s office. Responding officers didn’t have to ask too many questions before witnesses came forward tp point the finger at Hill.
Police located Hill, fully clothed and walking on Moog Road, carrying a putter.
The officer questioned Hill about his motives for bashing the Pontiac.
He explained that he was on the roof of the car because he thought that there was a baby inside and he “wanted to save it.”
The police report goes on to state: “I asked him why he opened the doors to the vehicle and he told me he wanted to air it out.”
Hill was charged with criminal mischief. He remained Tuesday at the Pasco jail in lieu of $1,000 bail.
