A routine traffic stop near Montreal took a strange turn Thursday morning when a naked motorist tried to ram cop cruisers, police say.

Officers attempted to intercept the driver at 6:25 a.m. in Longueuil, on the city's south shore. Police said the man refused to stop and rammed a patrol car, causing minor damage.

A chase ensued and the man twice tried to hit other cruisers but missed, police spokeswoman Melanie Mercille said.

Officers managed to stop the car and arrest the suspect. That's when they realized he wasn't wearing any clothes, Mercille said.

The 23-year-old suspect was taken to hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

No one was injured in the chase.
