Half-naked news

I've been pretty busy lately, so I haven't had enough time to keep up with the naked news, but I've managed to find just enough time for half-naked news. In Illinois:

GRANITE CITY - A half-naked man who led Granite City Police on a car chase into a mud pit may face a felony charge today.
Now that's an article you have to keep reading! And it involves a police chase, too, ending in something like quicksand.
Police spotted the man lying on the front seek [sic] of his pickup truck without his pants at about 1 p.m. Sunday near the corner of 21st Street and Edwardsville Road.

The chase that ensued ended in Venice with the man's Ford Ranger and two police cars stuck in mud just south of the McKinley Bridge. Tow trucks pulled the truck and two cars from the mud.

The man allegedly rammed one police car with his truck during the chase.

The man ran his truck off the road into a shallow, muddy area that police compared to quick sand. A covering of coal dust from a nearby coal-dumping trucking company makes the area look like solid ground, police said.
Police are asking that a felony charge of fleeing police and a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct be brought against the unnamed man. If he hadn't been wearing a shirt, he might have been charged with two felonies.
