A man who allegedly walked into a police station and took his pants off is now in custody, but not before reportedly running around the block naked.
The incident happened at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Colorado Springs Police Operations Center, just south of downtown.
Surveillance video obtained by 11 News shows the suspect walking around the POC lobby for a few minutes. Then he moves almost completely off camera, which is when police say he shed his pants. Afterwards, he ran out the door.
Officers say they found him a short time later running around the 800 block of S. Nevada without any clothes on. He was taken into custody for indecent exposure.
The suspect has been identified as 38-year-old Keith Gardener. Jail records show he has bonded out. He had previously been held on an $800 bond.
