The bare truth

So much for naked ambition
Last updated: 15-Jun-06 00:09 BST

AN AMERICAN who ran naked through the streets to try to persuade his girlfriend to marry him got more than he bargained for when he was chased and shot at.
The woman told him that she was not sure if she was ready for marriage, according to police in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The man responded that taking risks was an important part of life and, to prove his point, jumped out of a first-floor window and ran naked across the street.
He spotted a couple walking and hid in some bushes to avoid them. A 28-year-old man spotted bare feet and drew a handgun.
The naked suitor ran away, but the armed man gave chase and fired a shot.
A resident called police, who arrested the gunman for aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon.
