West Virginia Man Who Went Streaking Near NASCAR Race Also Caught With Live Raccoon

Joshua Emery Greene looks bemused in the mugshot featured in the above video. We find this an appropriate emotion, because we're bemused too. Why did he go streaking in a parking lot off Route 394 in Bristol, Tennessee, where the Irwin Tools Night Race took place on Saturday? And why was he carrying a live raccoon?


NBC 2 was just as confused as we were:

"I'm walking up through here and here he comes, back up and stops in front of the band waving and spinning in circles and stuff," explained Tim Lee, a witness.

Police were able to chase Greene and caught up with him in a nearby neighborhood. As police charged him, they discovered a wild animal in his car.

"With that we also found that he and a companion were in possession of a raccoon," said Bristol Police Captain Matt Austin.

Police called in Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to help with the furry situation. "They said his girlfriend rescued it from a park, but as far as where it actually came from, we couldn't really say for sure," Austin said.


There is so much we really can't say for sure.
