SLIDELL, Louisiana — It’s a pretty good bet drugs were involved.
A man on his way to find a “voodoo doctor,” crashed his car through a fence at a Louisiana airport and was later found stripped down to only his underwear because he claimed snakes had been crawling up his pants, police said.
Kevin Bolton, 43, of Hattiesburg, Mississippi said he had been running from police when he slammed his Chevy Tahoe through the fence of the Slidell Municipal Airport Monday morning and causing a telephone pole to fall on his car.
Police, however, say no law enforcement agency had been pursuing Bolton. Things got even weirder after the crash.
Bolton then fled into the woods near the airport, but turned up a couple of hours later in a nearby subdivision clad in only his underwear, cops said.
“Bolton alleges that he had to strip off his clothes because snakes were crawling up his pants,” the Slidell police said in a statement.
Cops said they believed Bolton was under the influence of some type of narcotic. He was booked on charges of careless operation of a motor vehicle and hit and run.
