PETALUMA (AP) — Authorities say a naked man who was running on a Northern California freeway resisted an officer’s attempt to arrest him and had to be subdued with a stun gun.

The California Highway Patrol said 25-year-old Alexander Leonard of Hawthorne was taken into custody Sunday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs and resisting arrest.
