Naked man dodging traffic eluded police for a short time

(Riverton, Wyo.) - A 20-year-old Riverton man running naked down the 500 block of Main Street was finally captured by Riverton Police after several foot chases. Vincent Lopes was eventually charged with Use of a Controlled Substance and Interference. The call came in at 8:10 p.m. Police were told a naked man was running down the street and dodging cars, acting erratic and pounding on cars. At some point, an older green vehicle stopped and the naked man jumped in. Officers stopped the vehicle, which was driven by Lopez's father, but the younger man jumped out and began running again. The officer in pursuit ordered him to the ground, and Lopez complied, only to jump up again as the officer closed in on him. At that point, an RPD report indicated the officer pepper sprayed Lopez and he was taken into custody. Lopez was given jail scrubs to wear. The 20-year-old allegedly told police that he had been using a combination of both Ecstasy, a powerful stimulant, and Methamphetamine. #county10 #news
