(Scroll down for video) Police released body cam footage, showing the moment they arrested a carjacking suspect who was dressed only in her underwear.

30-year-old Sharnett Barton was arrested on Monday in Orange City, Florida, over a series of bizarre incidents.

She now faces charges of robbery carjacking without a firearm, resisting an officer, and leaving the scene of a crash.

The strange case unfolded at around 5:00 p.m., when a male friend said that Barton came to his house, claiming that people wanted to kill her.

She then removed her clothes down to her underwear, and jumped out the window.

“I have never seen her act like this. I immediately calling 911,” the friend who declined to be identified said.

The friend said that Barton then approached a vehicle on the road in an attempt to carjack the drivers through force.

However, the driver managed to get away. She then ambushed another driver, who gave up the vehicle.

Barton drove for about 12 miles and sideswiped two vehicles, causing about $7,000 in damages.

Barton eventually struck a pole and ran into a Walmart with just her underwear on. When an officer tried to arrest her, Barton resisted and claimed she was pregnant.

Backup arrived and Barton was taken into custody.
