A drunk, naked woman was arrested this week after she drove a car into her naked fiancé, according to the California Highway Patrol.

What exactly happened wasn't clear, but the woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and causing injury, according to The Daily Press. The 30-year-old Victorville man's name is Alberto Giovanni Bravo. The CHP refused to release the name of the 22-year-old woman from Hesperia, which is unusual, but authorities said the investigation was "sensitive."

Around 12:40 am on Thursday morning, Bravo and his fiancée had parked their 2008 Honda Civic on a road in Phelan, which is just west of Hesperia. At one point, Bravo got out of the car, and his fiancée slid over to the driver's seat. She accelerated and struck Bravo, who landed on the hood of the car. The woman then hit the brakes, causing the car to veer out of control and hit two trees and then a chain-link fence across the street.

Bravo was thrown off the hood and suffered severe injuries. He was airlifted to Antelope Valley Hospital. The woman had minor injuries from the crash and booked into the Victor Valley jail.

CHP spokesman Matt Hunt explained to The Daily Press that the agency wasn't releasing the woman's name: "Part of this investigation is of a sensitive nature and still under investigation. Until that portion of the investigation is cleared up, we will be holding off on releasing the name."
