CHICAGO (AP) -- A southern Illinois man awakened to find a spider in his bed and bolted in fear, fleeing naked through a glass door.
The police in Albion, Ill., say the 20-year-old man was sleeping in the buff when he spotted the spider Tuesday morning and took off from his home in the 2,000-resident town in Edwards County.
Sheriff Darby Boewe says the disoriented man apparently ran through a glass storm door to escape, cutting his arms, legs and a finger.
He was treated at a hospital.
Authorities fielded numerous reports of a bloody streaker and later found the man back at his home, where he'd donned some shorts.
It isn't clear what kind of spider he encountered.
The sheriff doesn't suspect drugs or alcohol were involved.
