Quanta'e Powell | Crestview Police Department

Wonder how he feels about cocaine.

Naked 21-year-old Quanta'e Powell jumped onto the hood of a police cruiser when authorities arrived recently at an apartment complex in Crestview, Fla., according to a report obtained by The Huffington Post.

The incident took place on Feb. 24, but news reports recalling the details of the arrest surfaced this week.

Powell was "very agitated" and when asked by the officer if he needed assistance, just kept "yelling about cocaine," and about how he "loved" it, the report said.

After the officer continued to question Powell he became distressed and took off running, according to the report. Officers said they eventually subdued Powell with a Taser.

As the Northwest Florida Daily News noted, the report said that, "Statements from the defendant were not possible as he would only state he loved cocaine and needed more cocaine."

Powell was taken to a local hospital and, once released, transfered to jail on a charge of avoiding arrest without violence.
