NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches County authorities reported spending Monday morning chasing down a naked man high on meth which he received from his mother.
Pct. 4 Constable David Stone said he received a call at 10:16 a.m. of a naked man running in and out of the woods along County Road 475.
When deputies arrived, Stone said the man resisted arrest and even chased a citizen in the area. He said they had to use a Taser to subdue him.
"I was going to visit a friend. When I turned down the road, I observed a naked body in front of me walking down the road," said Nathan Alders, a witness. "He made a dash for me and tried to get a hold of me."
Stone said deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office came to the scene to assist. He said the man, identified as Oreen Rogers, 31, of Arizona, said he was high on meth which his mother gave to him.
"I knew something was wrong with him," Alders said.
Stone said he admitted to being out of control and shedding his clothes and talking to God. Deputies found marijuana in his clothes along the road.
Stone said sheriff's deputies went back to the home Rogers was staying and found seven-tenths of a gram of meth in the home. They arrested Rogers' mother, Sherrina Sanchez, 52, of Lufkin, on a charge of state-jail felony possession of a controlled substance.
Rogers is charged with misdemeanor offenses of resisting arrest, public intoxication, possession of marijuana and disorderly conduct.
"It's not normal in Etoile to see someone walking down the middle of the road with their clothes off," Alders said.
