A Delaware man who claimed he lost his pants faces drunken driving charges after authorities say the deputy who pulled him over noticed he was in the buff below the waist.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

A spokesman for Maryland's Cecil County Sheriff's Office said 41-year-old Jonathan Schultz "was driving commando" and only partially covered with a towel on his lap, though he was wearing a shirt.

Lt. Bernard Chiominto said Schultz was stopped Saturday near Rising Sun for going 69 mph in a 50-mph zone.

Chiominto said the deputy smelled alcohol and noticed Schultz's semi-exposed situation. The Newark, Del., man told the deputy he'd lost his pants, and the deputy didn't find any in the car.

It was unclear if Schultz had an attorney, and an attempt to reach him at a relative's home was unsuccessful.
