A 34-year-old Glendale man was arrested last week on suspicion of driving while high on meth and naked from the waist down. Umar Kahn, a computer technician, told Glendale Police officers who pulled him over early last Thursday morning for running a stop sign that he had taken off his pants and underwear because he was "sexually frustrated and hadn't had sex in a month," reports CBS2.

Kahn told the officers, who asked why his frustration led to nudity, that doing so "gave him a sense of freedom," described a Glendale PD rep, per CBS2. The Glendale News-Press reported that Khan actually told the officers: "My thing is the freedom."

The frustrated, naked, traffic law-breaking freebird was also allegedly smoking methamphetamine while out on his drive. Khan allegedly routinely makes these drives, and searches for a cul-de-sac in which to park and masturbate, according to the News-Press.

Kahn now faces drug and indecent exposure charges. He made bail, and is due back in court later in March.

The kicker? This might not have been Kahn's first trip around the ol' block: A Glendale Police spokesman said authorities "were investigating a similar situation Khan was allegedly involved in about a year ago in Pomona." Los Angeles County Superior Court records indicate Kahn was convicted for indecent exposure in 1998.
