TEGA CAY, S.C. - A man opened up to Eyewitness News about what led him to walk inside a local Walmart  naked.

Kevin Hughes, 36, said he was not only embarrassed, but felt as if he was out of his mind when he walked inside a Tega Cay Walmart in the middle of the night, wearing nothing but black shoes.

Tega Cay police said they were called to the store, located on StoneCrest Boulevard, just before midnight last night after store employees spotted Hughes walking in the Health and Beauty section naked.

When police arrived, they said they found Hughes in the electronics section of the store.

They quickly escorted him out. 

Hughes said the last thing he remembers is going to sleep at his sister’s house Thursday night and the next thing he knew, he woke up naked in his truck at Walmart.  He hopped out and walked into the store.

“I’ve had a problem with drugs in the past. I still like to do Ecstasy once in a while,” Hughes said. “I accidentally got methamphetamine instead and it really made me crazy.”
 
He added, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry. It was an accident. It wasn’t something I intended to do.”

Hughes was arrested for disorderly conduct.  He’s out of jail on bond after spending the night behind bars.
