KANNAPOLIS, NC (WBTV) - Sheriff's deputies have arrested a Kannapolis teen who they say was naked and led officers on a high-speed chase Saturday night.

According to a spokesman for the Rowan County Sheriff's Office, Charles Eric Mance, 18, and a 17-year-old female companion were parked at the Kannapolis Intimidators Stadium off Lane Street.

When the deputy spotted Mance's car and approached the vehicle, Mance took off leading deputies on a high-speed chase.

When the chase ended, Mance stepped outside the vehicle and that's when deputies discovered he was naked.

The female was not charged.  Officials did not say whether or not she was clothed.

Mance was charged with fleeing to elude law enforcement, careless and reckless driving, failure to stop for a stop sign, and failure to burn headlights.
