HENAGAR, AL (AP) — Authorities in Alabama say a man charged with burglary was naked when he was taken into custody.

DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris tells al.com (http://bit.ly/2hbdSEP) that 40-year-old Mark Tucker, of Flat Rock, is charged with third-degree burglary, second-degree burglary, breaking into a vehicle and attempted murder.

Harris says his office got a call about 5:45 a.m. Monday about a man prowling around a house and possibly in a garage near Henagar.

The sheriff says the prowler was confronted by a resident and the two men began to struggle when the prowler fired a gun. A woman was grazed by the bullet but not seriously injured.

Harris says the suspect ran into the woods and was later found inside a home naked.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Tucker.
