A man was arrested for driving while intoxicated Wednesday after he was found knocking on doors in Arlington, Texas, while naked. 

According to the Arlington Police Department, officers responded to the 4800 block of Hollow Tree Court after a citizen reported that an unknown man was knocking on people's doors asking to use a phone charger.

Police said that when officers arrived in the neighborhood, another homeowner told them the man was naked.

While searching for the suspect, police discovered a parked vehicle blocking the roadway along Waxwing Drive. A man wearing a jacket and no pants approached the officers and informed them that he was the owner of the vehicle, police said.

The man was identified as 27-year-old Walied Taha.
