LAKEWOOD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – Police in one Ocean County, N.J. arrested a naked man found riding a tricycle at an apartment complex Tuesday evening.

As WCBS 880’s Levon Putney reported, an officer responded to the Crossroads Apartments complex in Lakewood to investigate the interesting call.

“I’d probably be lying if I said that I didn’t smirk a little bit, that’s for sure,” Sgt. Greg Staffordsmith told Putney. “Sort of disbelief. I actually had to read the report twice.”

By the time the officer arrived on the scene, he said 31-year old Jermaine Jones of Trenton was under a stairwell – still naked – eating broken glass and cigarettes.

“He also admitted to the officer that he had recently ingested cocaine,” Staffordsmith said.

Jones is charged with being under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance and with disorderly conduct.

He was treated for minor cuts to his mouth.
