Naked Suspect Arrested In Jones County

It's a call Maysville Police won't soon forget. A man suspected in a breaking and entering was naked and making his getaway on a skateboard.

Police say when they finally caught up to 22-year-old Morris Ellison of Newport he was in a car with angry victims surrounding it. The car ran out of gas and he was arrested.

Police say Ellison went to 303 Bynum Avenue to break in, but was surprised by the victim. Ellison, who at some point had a sawed off shotgun, attempted to run, but he was met by angry citizens who confronted him and attempted to detain him, until law enforcement could arrive. Ellison briefly got away and somehow lost his clothes in the process, before jumping on a skateboard to take off.

Ellison is charged with several offenses and jailed on $50,000 bond.
