A Tulsa man is facing a laundry list of charges for the second time this month -- this time, accused of stealing a truck, escaping from a hospital and falling through a restaurant's ceiling vent naked.

The bizarre chain of events started around 9:30 a.m. Thursday morning, when police say David Ketcher, 34, went to his uncle's house and asked for money because "he was on the run."

According to a booking report, Ketcher then stole his uncle's keys and truck.

As police were searching for him, Ketcher hid in an underground drainage system, where he was found by officers.

Police determined he needed to be taken to the hospital and was transported by EMSA.

At that point, the report states that Ketcher lied about his identity and walked away from the hospital in just a hospital gown, according to the report.

He was then seen entering a basement of Queenie's Bakery in Utica Square, during which time officers were in the area trying to track him down.

The report states that the staff fled the kitchen after Ketcher dropped from a ceiling vent naked, losing his hospital gown at some point.

A K-9 officer and his partner found him as he was still trying to escape, and he was bitten by the dog and taken back to the hospital, police said.

Ketcher is charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, escape from arrest and false impersonation.

He is being held on a $13,000 bond.

Earlier this month, Ketcher was arrested for reportedly leading police on a chase, wrecking his car at a West Tulsa motel and burglarizing a motel room.

A records check showed he had 10 outstanding warrants out at the time of that arrest.
