SOUTH WILLIAMSON, Ky. (WYMT) – The Pike County sheriff obtained arrest warrants Friday after a video was posted online showing a man running naked through Walmart, pouring milk on himself and yelling he was on fire.
Sheriff’s deputies said they plan to arrest Timothy Smith of Phelps and David Daniels of Belfry in connection to the incident at the Walmart in South Williamson.
The video went online Wednesday night and quickly racked up hundreds of views.
Walmart shoppers saw more than they were looking for when a man stripped down and ran through the store in nothing but shoes, socks and a Halloween mask.
“I wouldn’t want to go in Walmart and see somebody walking around naked or running around naked, so they need to go to jail,” Pike County Sheriff Rodney Scott said.
Scott said the streaker and camera operator are both guilty of indecent exposure and believes the prank was planned.
“The first question I would have would be, ‘Why?'” Scott said. “Why would they want to do it.”
Sheriff’s deputies are trying to track down the getaway driver, who waited for the streaker to get into a red car before driving away.
YouTube removed the video because it shows nudity.
As of 11 p.m. Friday, Smith and Daniels had not been arrested, Pike County Detention Center officials said.
