Naked man who led police on chase in Va. granted bond

ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA9) -- The man who police say stripped naked and led police on a chase in Clarendon before crashing and fleeing on foot has been granted bond.

Twenty-two-year-old Charles Mack appeared in an Arlington courtroom Wednesday, where a judge granted him $7,500 bond.

The incident happened during the All American Bar Crawl on Saturday when Mack took off his clothes inside Goody's pizza and drove the wrong way on Wilson Boulevard before crashing. Police had to Taser Mack, who they say ran from the car on foot. Officials say Mack was also on ecstasy during the incident.

Both of Mack's parents were in the courtroom Wednesday. The judge said the fact that Mack comes from a prominent family - his mother works for Lockheed Martin and his grandfather was Colin Powell's mentor - was a factor in the decision. Mack is a senior at VCU and has a job, according to his attorney.

Mack's attorney said the first thing his client said after the incident was "Did I hurt anybody? Did I hit anyone? Is anyone hurt?" His attorney told the judge that this speaks to Mack's character.

The bar crawl took place during Mack's birthday weekend.

He has been charged with DWI, narcotics possession, disregarding police commands and three separate hit and run charges.
