    Naked man led 20 police on countryside chase

    A naked man led 20 police officers on a two hour chase across rugged countryside after he was caught drink-driving, a court was told.

    As well as admitting the alcohol offence Martin Michael Marlow of Martinfield Road, Penwortham, near Preston, also pleaded guilty to driving without insurance, damaging a pair of police handcuffs, obstructing an officer, assaulting a Woman Police Constable and committing a public order offence arising after he threw railway ballast at an officer.

    Elaine Hobson, prosecuting, said police were alerted to a drink driver on the evening of Sunday, June 10.and Marlow and his Seat car were spotted at around 8pm by PC Stuart Hannaford, parked in a lay-by.

    When the constable stopped to speak with Marlow he gave three different names and then claimed someone else had been driving the car and that they were in nearby woods.

    PC Hannaford arrested and handcuffed him, placing him in a police vehicle, but before it had travelled far it had to stop because the defendant had begun to remove the cuffs, said Miss Hobson.

    Although a disabling spray and electronic baton were used on him they had little effect and Marlow, whose shirt was ripped off in the struggle, ran off across a railway track towards Looe, Cornwall.

    A total of 20 officers, police dogs and the force helicopter then began a search for him and he was eventually seen, totally naked, in a field.


    After a further pursuit Marlow was arrested and taken to Launceston Police Station where a test revealed 53mcgs of alcohol in a 100ml specimen of his breath. The legal limit is 35mcgs.

    Marlow, who works for a window manufacturer, made a full admission and apologised. He was granted conditional bail. The court adjourned the hearing and remitted the charges to Preston Magistrates Court on Monday, where he is due to appear on other matters.
