STOCKTON, Calif.—A naked man in Northern California led police on a bizarre chase Monday as he jumped from one rooftop to another and over before being arrested.

Officers arrived at a home on the 300 block of Edan Avenue in Stockton at about noon with an arrest warrant for 36-year-old John Redmon.

But Redmon fled through the back door, officials said. The next time officers spotted him, he was on a rooftop and wearing no clothes.

The Stockton Record reports ( http://bit.ly/1d87Yuj) that Redmon jumped onto four rooftops in the course of the chase.

When police caught him, the paper said, officers had to use a baton to subdue him.

He was booked on suspicion on stalking, drug-related violations and resisting arrested.
