UTRERA, Spain, Aug. 26 (UPI) -- Police in Spain said they arrested a man accused of fleeing police while drunkenly riding a motor scooter in the nude.

Investigators said a pair of Civil Guard traffic units in Utrera responded early Sunday to reports of a nude man riding a scooter unsteadily on a local road and the man allegedly refused to stop when ordered, fleeing "in a reckless manner," The Local.es reported Monday.

The man endangered pedestrians during the chase by riding up on sidewalks, police said.

The man eventually fled on foot and fell into a field of sunflowers, police said.

The suspect is facing charges of reckless driving and driving under the influence of alcohol.
