Naked Man At Walmart Says He Got The Wrong Drugs

A South Carolina man who walked into a Walmart wearing nothing but his shoes said he went "crazy" after getting his hands on the wrong drugs.

“I’ve had a problem with drugs in the past. I still like to do ecstasy once in a while,” Kevin Hughes told WSOC-TV. “I accidentally got methamphetamine instead and it really made me crazy.”

Hughes, 36, said that he remembers going to sleep at his sister's house Thursday. The next thing he recalled was waking up in his truck in the parking lot of a Tega Cay Walmart.

Hughes told a reporter that he only realized he was naked once he ventured into the store. When police arrived, he reportedly told them he was looking to buy some clothes, according to WGHP. He was escorted out by police, who found some shorts in Hughes' truck and took him to jail.

He spent the night locked up on a disorderly conduct charge and bonded out the next day. Hughes said he is embarrassed by the incident and will probably move to a different town.

"I’m sorry. It was an accident. It wasn’t something I intended to do,” Hughes said. "I can't face anybody that I know here anymore."
