Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Police say a man in Boise, Idaho went running naked through a park. They know this because he went streaking past a squad car. Now, police told Grant Carter to stop, and he did. But then he ran, so the cops gave chase. It goes without saying that the cops filed charges once they caught the guy.
