CHARLOTTE, N.C. (CBS Charlotte) - A man was arrested and is facing multiple charges after breaking into the offices of the SPEED Network – while naked – and destroying property he found inside.

The suspect, an unidentified male, was said to have entered the building early Monday morning. He proceeded to tear down papers, dump out trash cans and break trophies found around the office space during his time inside.

A network employee told CBS affiliate WBTV that police arrived soon after the suspect entered the building.

Eventually, the man attempted to flee the scene. However, he had still neglected to put on clothing as he tried to make a run for it.

Police soon caught the man, the station learned, and security guard with the SPEED Network reportedly offered him a jacket to cover himself up after his apprehension.

Managers of the network’s Facebook page confirmed the story by posting a link to WBTV’s coverage.

“For all that have heard the rumors, it is true,” the SPEED Network said in addition to sharing the link. “No one was injured and the naked perpetrator was arrested by Charlotte Mecklenburg Police.”
