PHOENIX -- A man accused of carjacking and crashing several cars while naked, has changed his plea to "guilty".

Wednesday in court, 45 year old John Brigham entered guilty pleas on charges of robbery, theft, aggravated assault and endangerment. He had previously pleaded "not guilty" to to several charges, including aggravated assault, robbery and DUI.

Police say back in June, Brigham crashed his car in Scottsdale, carjacked another vehicle, then crashed into several other cars. He reportedly stripped naked at some point during the incident, and also jumped on the roof of a car.

The police report says Brigham had PCP in his system at the time.

The crashes left seven people injured.

Brigham's sentencing is set for Jan. 23, 2012.
