      READING, Pa. (AP) - A 38-year-old Reading man who walked naked
along a highway after being thrown into the woods following a crash
is charged with a variety of crimes.
      Police say John Messerly was driving his employer's minivan
April 4 when he climbed out the window and stood on the roof. He
was thrown into the woods when the van crashed. Police say he then
stripped naked and led officers on a chase. Police say Messerly had
cocaine in his system.
      In an interview with the Reading Eagle, Messerly denied climbing
onto the roof. He said he was adjusting lumber that had come loose
when he was thrown from the vehicle. He said he stripped naked to
check himself for injuries.
      Messerly is charged with risking a catastrophe, indecent
exposure, resisting arrest, driving while intoxicated and other
