TARPON SPRINGS, Fla., Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said they arrested a man accused of running nude through a golf course and assaulting a convenience store worker.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to a report of a man running nude through a Tarpon Springs golf course and they caught up with him at a 7-Eleven store, where he allegedly assaulted an employee, the Tampa Bay Times reported Tuesday.

But the man fled in a van, sideswiping a patrol car in the process. Deputies managed to stop the vehicle, but the man, who was still nude, fled on foot. Eventually, he was caught by deputies, investigators said.

The man, whose name was not released, is facing charges, including battery and aggravated fleeing to elude, the sheriff's office said.

Deputies said they do not know why the man had shed his clothes.
