A spokesman for Maryland's Cecil County Sheriff's Office says 41-year-old Jonathan Schultz "was driving commando" and only partially covered with a towel on his lap, though he was wearing a shirt.
Lt. Bernard Chiominto says Schultz was stopped Saturday near Rising Sun for going 69 mph in a 50-mph zone.
Chiominto says the deputy smelled alcohol and noticed Schultz's semi-exposed situation. The Newark, Delaware, man told the deputy he'd lost his pants, and the deputy didn't find any in the car.
It was unclear if Schultz had an attorney, and an attempt to reach him at a relative's home was unsuccessful.
