Ohio Man Crashes his Harley Davidson During Naked, Drunken Joy Ride




A Toledo man has been hospitalized after taking a drunken, naked jaunt around city back roads on his Harley Davidson yesterday evening.

The 56-year-old man who has since been identified as Michael Brumbaugh is currently receiving treatment for head injuries at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo.

Here's how the evening played out, according to The Sandusky Register:

7:00 p.m.

Sandusky County Police receive a call that a nekkid man is perched atop a Harley Davidson motorcycle. Said drunken man is parked in a church lot at County Road 113 and County Road 177- God bless him.

~7:10 p.m.

Brumbaugh revs his engine and peels out of the church parking lot, after (most likely) giving a fat middle finger to Institution! To War! To no Clean Clothes!

~7:10 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Police continue to get updates on the motorcyclist's whereabouts, probably from appalled and/or intrigued passerby. Police catch up with Brumbaugh near County Road 294 and the Ohio Turnpike. They do their thing with the lights and sirens, but Mr. Nekkid Joyride pays them little mind. Police inform dispatch of where the motorcycle is heading.

7:35 p.m.

The motorist's jaunt comes to an abrupt end after he blows through a stop sign near Ohio 101 and veers out of control. The bike overturns and sends Brumbaugh flying (can we just say OUCH). He is flown by medical helicopter to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo where he is currently recovering from his injuries.

Let's just hope he doesn't remember any of this, huh?
