When police arrived at the home of 36-year-old John Redmon to serve an outstanding warrant for his arrest on stalking and drug-related charges, he managed to escape through a back door and get out on the roof of a building in the Valley Oak District of Stockton, Calif.

He happened to be wearing his birthday suit at the time.

While completely nude, Redmon led Stockton Police on a chase across at least four rooftops before officers were able to take him into custody. In addition to the previous charges, Redmon added resisting arrest to his list of alleged offenses.

“We have never seen anything like that around here at all, but I wish I would have,” neighbor Chris Mays told FOX40.

“It would make me feel uncomfortable if my kids would have seen it. There are a lot of kids around here. It is a nice neighborhood. It is strange that that happened.”
