A man was arrested after he attempted to carjack a man who offered him clothes.

The man of Florida, was arrested on Tuesday afternoon, after he was accused of trying to steal the car while he was naked.

Police were called around 3:30 p.m., after 32-year-old Ganzo Keith Haynes was completely naked and wandering along Southwest 40th Avenue in Gainesville.

A man told police that he spotted Haynes, who was completely naked, so he pulled over to the side of the road to offer him some clothes to cover himself.

As the man turned to get the clothes, Haynes grabbed him by the neck and began to choke him, according to the arrest report.
Haynes demanded that the man hand over his car keys. After holding him down for a bit, Haynes changed his mind and walked away.

GPD officers caught up with Haynes and he was arrested.

Haynes told police that he was naked because he had been drinking. He then explained that he wanted the man’s car in an attempt to escape after the man tried to unbutton his own pants.

Haynes was arrested and charged with carjacking. He was booked into the Alachua County jail.
