Indiana man leaps from second floor window naked to escape divorce papers

US police officers who had gone to a home in Lebanon, Indiana, to serve divorce papers earlier this week were a startled when a man leapt naked from a second floor window and fled.

Shortly afterwards, a local man reported that his car had been stolen after he had left it running with keys in the ignition.

Later that day police found the naked man with the stolen car at a truck stop outside town and took him into custody. He was identified as 24 year-old John Baldwin Jr. Baldwin told officers that he  had fled because he believed there was an outstanding arrest warrant against him.

The man received treatment at the local hospital and was then sent to a hospital in nearby Indianapolis for evaluation.
