“There are state troopers, KCPD, the (Clay County) sheriff’s department and the helicopters up,” Fishell is heard saying.

According to The Kansas City Star, the chase began at 2:20 p.m. after police received a report of a suspicious, naked man riding an ATV. He was suspected of being under the influence of drugs, police say.

The unidentified naked man was eventually arrested around 3:45 p.m.

As of Monday morning, Fishell’s video had been viewed more than 1.2 million times on Facebook.
