A naked man eluded police for more than an hour in Dorchester yesterday evening, as scores of officers and state troopers descended on the area to search for the au naturel fugitive.

It all began with a traffic stop gone awry at about 5:30 p.m., when police pulled over a car with three men inside, said Officer Eddy Chrispin, Boston police spokesman. After observing one of the men behaving suspiciously, police ordered him out of the car and discovered he had a handgun, Chrispin said. The man began to struggle with officers, and during the the altercation the other two men sped off. The suspect ended up shedding his clothes and gun in the struggle, and fled the scene, Chrispin said.
