 A man accused of stealing a Hummer limousine has been arrested after authorities caught him fleeing from the vehicle naked, authorities said Monday.

Ahmad Mabrok, 29, of Tustin confronted the limousine's driver at the intersection of Sand Canyon Avenue and Burt Road in Irvine about 8:15 p.m. Saturday, said Irvine Police Department Lt. Julia Engen. He was allegedly armed with a gun.

California Highway Patrol officers pursued the suspect until he pulled over in Whittier and tried to flee the limo. He had no clothes on, Engen said.

"How it happened, I don't know," Engen said of the man's nude run.

A police dog chased after Mabrok before police arrested him, Engen said. He was later sent to the hospital.

No passengers were in the limo at the time of the incident.
