MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Police say they arrested a man Friday night who ran half-naked through a park in downtown Memphis.

An officer on patrol spotted a car backed into a parking space at Martin Luther King Jr. Park around 8:30 p.m., more than two hours after the park closed. When the officer flipped on his lights police say 20-year-old Byron Blocker got out of the back seat and ran.

Police say Blocker was naked from the waist down and wearing only a black shirt. Officers caught up to him after about five minutes.

Blocker was booked into jail for indecent exposure and evading arrest.
