    Houston police chase, catch naked gunman

    HOUSTON—A gunman who prompted an evacuation at the Mercer Arboretum Saturday was arrested naked after leading cops on a wild chase.
    The whole thing started when Precinct 4 deputies responded to a call about a domestic disturbance near the park.
    When they arrived, they saw Raphael Jones, 19, in the street with a gun.
    Jones was a parolee, and he had removed his ankle bracelet.
    He ran from police, hopping fences and tearing through backyards in an attempt to lose them.
    At one point, he shot at the deputies, but no one was hit.
    When Jones climbed over the fence into the Arboretum, deputies evacuated the area and surrounded the park.
    Once in the park, Jones robbed a dad and his kids of their cell phone and car keys and later carjacked a pregnant woman.
    Deputies pursued Jones in the stolen car until he finally stopped and exited the vehicle with no clothes on.
    It was unclear why he had removed them.
    Jones is reportedly wanted in Louisiana for aggravated assault and kidnapping.

    Holy cow! Digging in the news archives?

    Just for those not catching it, this happened almost a year ago.

    And I agree, it's a lesson the things that happen that we do carry for.

    However, I'm betting that the arboretum is posted 30.06 as the zoo and everything in the museum district including the arboretum in Fort Worth. I'd be curious as it's frustrating to see Cities restrict their law abiding tax payers like that.

    will make the user incapable of controlling his own body temp. When you see a naked guy wandering around incoherently, it is usually PCP.
