Driver accused of naked aggression
PLAISTOW — A Plaistow man is facing several charges after he yelled at another driver and then stripped off his clothes following a minor traffic accident on Tuesday, police said.
Jared D. Hooper, 21, of 26 Partridge Lane, was arrested after police responded to the area of Garden and Westville roads around 6:30 p.m. to investigate the accident involving Hooper and another vehicle.
Deputy Police Chief Kathleen Jones said Hooper struck the other vehicle and then got out of his car and ran over to yell at the female driver.
“He started smashing on the window and was yelling at her. Then he stopped and took off all of his clothing,” Jones said.
The woman became frightened and remained inside her car with the windows up, Jones said.
The officers who responded knew this wasn’t a routine accident call after dispatchers were notified that Hooper was stripping down. Initial reports indicated that he took off his clothes and ran from the scene, but Jones said he never fled.
“When officers got there he was standing there naked. He was still screaming. He had absolutely nothing on. This was definitely an unusual occurrence,” said Jones, who did not identify the female driver.
Contacted at his home Wednesday night, Hooper said he couldn’t comment on the accident or the reasons why he took off his clothes.
“Unfortunately I can’t respond to questions. I have nothing to say,” he said.
No one was injured in the crash, but Hooper was transported to Exeter Hospital for a blood test, Jones said.
“He was definitely under the influence of something,” Jones said.
Hooper was charged with driving while intoxicated, and with disorderly conduct, lewd behavior and criminal threatening.
He was released on $750 personal recognizance bail and is due back in court on Nov. 7.
