SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Police have arrested a naked carjacking suspect who allegedly caused two separate car collisions that injured seven people in Scottsdale.

Authorities say the man was taken to a hospital Friday afternoon to be evaluated for drug use or any mental issues.

His name wasn't immediately released. Police say he could face carjacking and felony hit-and-run charges.

Witnesses say the man exited a vehicle after the first crash, took off his clothes and carjacked another vehicle.

Police say four people were injured in the second crash including a pregnant woman who broke both her legs.

      Unquestionably, one of the oddest news stories ever. I cannot help wondering if the individual arrested was armed; and I a bit perplexed as to how he pulled off the consecutive carjackings to begin with, or, rather, allegedly pulled off. I feel especially badly for the pregnant woman who is reported to have suffered two broken legs.

        was most likely a tazer not a gun. Against someone high on meth or whatever, sometimes it doesn't even affect them. And who the hell wants to touch him and wrestle him to the ground?

      Being naked doesn't make this crime funny one bit! Now the pregnant woman must suffer for months and be robbed of at least some of the joy of caring for her newborn with two working legs. She, or her unborn child, could have died. Lucky for this douchebag that he didn't run into someone like me who carries and will not be a victim to a carjacker naked or not.

      I see many people cracking jokes. I was at the second accident (did not witness it happen but was there after it happened). If you saw the condition of cars involved, it is amazing that no one got killed. I have seen many accidents and I was expecting body bags. Full size Chevy Pick up, a Toyota Prius and a Lexus LS were totally crushed and mangled. Fourth Car i could not tell. I am really glad that no one died. One pregnant women ended up with both broken legs, 2 Guys in the Pick up had head injuries and were bleeding....). I sure as heck do not find it amusing.

        I am also from Phoenix and am amazed at the aftermath. Hope the pregnant woman survives as well as her unborn child. Not sure if this idiot was drunk or another one of those bath salt morons. Either way, he should never see the outside of a prison for a very long time.
