Talk about a Christmas surprise!

Adam Pettibone was arrested on Christmas Day after he reportedly stripped down to his birthday suit, entered a home, stole a woman’s purse, and tried to run a man over with an SUV!

This all started when police in Auburn, California received a call after 8pm on December 25 regarding a naked man who entered a home and snatched a woman’s purse.

Apparently after calling the cops, the woman’s boyfriend tried to take action on the nude criminal! The police stated:

“As the boyfriend chased the nude male, the male suspect got into a Chevrolet SUV and attempted to run over the victim as the suspect fled the scene.”

The boyfriend was hit by the vehicle but luckily was not seriously injured.

The woman who was robbed wanted to stay anonymous but was clearly a bit shaken by the event. She said:

“I just don’t know if it was an attempted robbery, or if it was attempted rape, or if he was targeting this place. It’s unsettling.”

And just in case you didn’t know that nudity is not the right attire for robbery, Captain Obvious Sgt. Tucker Huey said in a statement:

“The proper way to dress typically would be long pants, a long jacket, some type of hat, maybe some gloves at that time of night — obviously not nude.”


Currently Pettibone is in Placer County Jail on $250,000 bail and has not enter a plea.

As HIGHlarious as this story is, we’re also glad everyone is okay and that the victims are able to move on from this startling incident and can have a happy holiday!
