Naked Michigan couple arrested after fleeing from police, endangering child


A Michigan couple was arrested earlier this week after Clare County Central Dispatch received a call reporting a vehicle traveling the wrong way down U.S. 127.

Deputies attempted to pullover the Chevy Blazer and even deployed stop sticks, but the driver fled, only to come to a stop and continue to flee on foot.

An undressed 23-year-old woman was apprehended shortly after and told officials that she'd ditched her husband and daughter at the nearby Mackie Rest Area. 

Police located the man, who was also flaunting his birthday best, and the child, before slapping the husband/wife duo with several charges including indecent exposure, child abuse, and, for the wife, fleeing and eluding.

The child was turned over to a third party while ma and pa wait arraignment.
