PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- A man was arrested Wednesday morning after running naked on Interstate 10 in Phoenix. 

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said troopers received a call of two tractor-trailer rigs colliding on the I-10 near Broadway Road. DPS said a man wearing one sock, boxers and a t-shirt jumped from the moving semi and ran down the shoulder while taking his clothes off and then walked out into traffic.

The trooper who responded was able to catch up with the man and took him into custody. DPS says suspect told the trooper he had hitched a ride on the semi, unbeknownst to the driver. DPS says the suspect pounded on the semi driver's back window to tell him he wanted off the truck and may have tried to get into the passenger compartment when he jumped off.
