A man was arrested Tuesday afternoon after he was accused of trying to steal a car while naked from a man who offered him clothes.
At 3:25 p.m., 32-year-old Ganzo Keith Haynes was in the buff and ambling along on the 2800 block Southwest 40th Avenue when he came upon a man beside a vehicle who offered him a chance to cover up. The man told Gainesville police officers he reached into his car for some clothing and Haynes grabbed his neck and began to choke him, according to a jail booking report.
Haynes told the man to get on the ground and hand over the keys to the car, according to the report. Haynes’ grip eventually forced the man down, and then he told him he no longer wanted the keys.
Haynes then ran away, and GPD officers eventually caught up with him. He told them he was naked because he had been drinking and that he grabbed the man in an attempt to get away after the man tried to unbuckle his own pants, the report states.
Haynes was arrested on a charge of carjacking and booked into the Alachua County jail, where he remained Wednesday awaiting a bond hearing.
