Nude NC student runs through library, throws books

Here's some news footage -- caught on cell phone but edited by the news station -- of freshman Seth Pace going through the North Carolina State University library on a mini-rampage -- nude..

One student told reporters:

"All of a sudden I just saw a bunch of people running upstairs," he said. "I went to about the eighth floor and there was this rumor going around that there was this guy stripped naked and just started throwing books everywhere."

The University of North Carolina student paper, The Daily Tar Heel, said the the incident lasted for about 20 minutes before campus police arrived and found Pace inside a women’s restroom.

He was arrested and charged with indecent exposure and simple assault.

University officials say Pace may have been on drugs. Read the TV story and see the video here.
