Naked Man Flees Home After Finding Spider in Bed

It's unclear what kind of spider the Illinois man encountered in his bed.

Arachnophobia trumped nudophobia for one southern Illinois man.

Police responding to reports of a bloody streaker running through the streets of Albion encountered a 20-year-old man who had apparently fled his home after waking up to find a spider in his bed.

Edwards County Sheriff Darby Boewe told the Evansville Courier & Press the man appeared to have become disoriented and had run out his house through a glass storm door while dressed in his birthday suit.

By the time police found the man, he had returned to his house and was wearing shorts, Boewe said.

The man suffered cuts to his arms, legs and a finger from broken glass and was transported to a hospital by ambulance, the sheriff said.

Boewe told the Evansville Courier & Press he did not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the incident.

“I just think he was sleeping in the nude and was really disoriented from waking up to find a spider in his bed,” he said.
