GLENDALE, Calif. (KLTA) -- Police arrested a man Thursday, saying he drove around naked from the waist down because it gave him a sense of "freedom," the Los Angeles Times reported.

A jury convicted Khan of indecent exposure in 1998, court records show.
Glendale police arrested the man just before 2:25 a.m. Thursday in the 1300 block of Doverwood Drive after officers noticed he failed to stop at a stop sign on Royal Boulevard, according to police reports.[FONT="]

When the officers approached Khans car, they noticed he wasn't wearing pants or underwear, the Times reported.
He was arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure, possessing methamphetamine and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
