He was hot.

That's an Ohio man's explanation for why he was walking along an Illinois interstate this morning — as the sheriff put it — "wearing nothing but a smile."

The man told authorities he was headed from Ohio to Kentucky to visit relatives. Somewhere along the way, he lost his clothes, his car and his teeth.

The naked walker was stopped along Interstate 64.

He was taken to the White County Jail, where authorities gave him some clothes.

No charges have been filed.
