imageSOMERSET COUNTY -- A 23-year-old Michigan man was arrested naked Sunday following a pair of car crashes, a carjacking and an attack on another driver, authorities said.

Kylle L. Alexander, of Saginaw, was taken into custody at a home on Old York Road in Bridgewater minutes after he carjacked a Honda Pilot at a hotel in Branchburg, the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office said in a statement.

Alexander's first encounter with police occurred at 9:30 a.m. Sunday at the Home Depot in Bridgewater when officers responded to a report of a man selling tools out of a Dodge Ram, authorities said.

When he told police he was homeless and needed money, officers informed Alexander that soliciting without a permit is illegal. Alexander then walked away, according to police.

Less than a half-hour later, a police officer saw Alexander driving the truck in the parking lot of the nearby Wegmans and attempted to stop him, authorities said. Alexander then sped out of the lot, jumped a curb, drove across grass and headed south on Route 202, authorities said.


Police didn't pursue the truck, but ran the plates and learned the vehicle was stolen out of New York. Earlier, a check of the vehicle showed it was not stolen, police said.

About 20 minutes later, the pickup truck collided with a Honda CR-V on Route 202 near North Branch River Road in Branchburg, authorities said. Alexander fled on foot to the hotel, where he accosted a man packing luggage into his vehicle, authorities said.

Alexander demanded the man's car keys and phone and then repeatedly punched him in the face when the owner of the Pilot tried to walk back to the hotel, authorities said.

Alexander then drove onto Route 202 north, where got into another crash - this time at at the intersection of Milltown Road and Old York Road in Bridgewater, authorities said.

Alexander again took off on foot, winding up at the home on Old York Road where police finally caught him, authorities said. He was naked at the time of his arrest, authorities said, though the circumstances were unclear.

The driver of the car in the second crash was treated for injuries. Alexander suffered injuries from both crashes.

He is charged with carjacking, two counts of burglary, eluding, aggravated assault, resisting arrest, receiving stolen property as well as many motor vehicle violations. Alexander was sent to the Somerset County jail.
