MAYSVILLE, Ky. - Police in northeastern Kentucky say a naked man bolted from a hospital in Maysville and stole a Jeep before fleeing to Ohio where he stole some clothing.

Maysville Police Sgt. Chris Neal says 34-year-old Justin Young didn't want to stay for treatment at Meadowview Regional Medical Center on Thursday, so he fled into a nearby corn field.

Neal told The Ledger Independent that Young took a Jeep from a farm and drove to Ohio. Once there, Neal says, Young went into a home and took some clothing.

Neal says Young left the Jeep behind at the home near Ripley, Ohio.

Neal says a felony theft warrant has been issues for Young stemming from his taking the Jeep.
