A naked man drove a pickup truck through the glass entrance doors of a suburban Dallas mall and smashed through a storefront, then started putting on clothes and shoes, police said.
Just before 7:30 a.m., police responded to a burglary call at the Southwest Center Mall, formerly known as the Red Bird Mall, at 3616 W. Camp Wisdom Road.
Officers said the incident started about a half hour earlier when the suspect got into a fight with family members.
According to police, he ran into the street wearing only a blanket and ran up to a motorist, knocking on her windows. The motorist sped away and called officers.
Police say the suspect then jumped into a red pickup and drove erratically to the mall, where he crashed through the glass doors.
By the time officers arrived on the scene, the truck was a quarter-mile inside the mall and smashed into the Champs store. Police saw the suspect putting on clothes and shoes from the store.
Officers said the man, identified as 35-year-old Arthur Walker, suffers from mental illness.
He was taken to the hospital for injuries he sustained during the crashes and then booked into jail on burglary charges.
