CANTON -- A North Canton man drove his car into the Ralph Regula Federal Building and United States Courthouse early Saturday morning, then ran naked from the scene.

The Canton Police Department tells Channel 3 Christopher McCormick 26, of North Canton is now in custody.

According to police McCormick ran his car into the Federal Building on 301 McKinley Avenue S.W. at 3:06 a.m.

McCormick drove though a parking lot security gate and over two curbs before his car struck the Federal Building's southwest entrance.

Police quickly apprehended the naked man and took him to Aultman Hospital for an evaluation. 

McCormick was treated and released into police custody. He was charged at the Stark County Jail with felony vandalism and an unrelated criminal trespassing warrant.

Stark County Clerk of Courts records show the unrelated trespassing warrant was issued in January after he failed to appear for a competency and sanity hearing.

He was also convicted in August 2011 for a misdemeanor criminal trespassing charge.
