Oregon police arrested a Bothell man after he reportedly tried to board a school bus while pantless.

Tuesday afternoon, police were told that a man had stopped his car in front of a school bus on northbound Interstate 5 near Creswell, Ore. Later reports said the man looked as if he ran his car into the bus, which had one adult female driver in it but no kids.

He took off his pants and tried to get on the bus.

Oregon state troopers, deputies and others responded.

A trooper spotted his car going north. It had two flat tires. The trooper tried to stop the car, but the driver tried to get away. He went through a fence and into a pond.

His car was submerged up to the windows. The driver got out and was arrested.

The Associated Press says the driver is a 38-year-old Bothell man and faces such charges as drunken driving, hit and run and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
