Naked jogging: Hot new fitness trend?

Ask any runner, and they'll tell you it's a mix of pleasure and pain. One Kansas jogger may have taken the pleasurable part of running a little too far: Several viewers told HLN affiliate WIBW that they spotted the sportsman, and he was running in the buff on a rainy Wednesday afternoon.

Topeka police also noticed him, put him in cuffs, and brought him to the hospital for treatment. A police spokesman told WIBW the naked jogger appeared to be under the influence of drugs.

But nudity on the streets isn't "as uncommon as you might think," Topeka Police Lt. Chuck Haggard told the station. 

So, is streaking a hot new fitness trend to watch? Its scope appears to be somewhat limited. According to Lt. Haggard, drug use is also usually involved in these sorts of public displays of nudity.
