A naked man was arrested after allegedly shattering the windshields of several cars in the Galleria area on Sunday afternoon. At 12:30 p.m., police went to 2500 West Loop South after receiving reports of a naked man on top of a vehicle. An HPD spokesman told CultureMap that the man, 28-year-old Ugo Iyegbu, shattered the windshields of several cars using the butt of the shotgun he was carrying. 

Witnesses reported that the man's rampage began when he stormed into the Shell gas station at 2602 West Loop South and began destroying the store and damaged the windshield of a car. Iyegbu then ran across the street where he allegedly used his gun to damage the windshields of at least seven more cars — two located in the parking lot of Hotel Derek and five cars parked in the W Luxury Car Rentals lot.

"The naked man (was) running around in the street breaking cars," the store manager of the W Luxury Car Rentals told the Houston Chronicle. "He looked normal but I am sure he was on something."

The manager estimated the damage to the five cars, which included a Mercedes Benz and a Lamborghini, will add up to $200,000.

Police officers ordered Iyegbu to drop his weapon and surrender, but he resisted until he was overpowered by officers. Following his arrest, Iyegbu was checked by EMS after sustaining several injuries to his hand while allegedly breaking windshields.

Iyegbu is being held on charges of felony criminal mischief.
