Naked Meth-Head to Cops: I'm Lying Naked in Field to Feel "Closer to God"

When police got to the scene, they found Peralta lying face down and completely naked in the empty field. He told cops he wanted his pants, which were in a nearby pile of clothing. The officers were happy to get Peralta his pants, and when they did, they found a pipe he'd been using to smoke meth in one of the pockets.

In addition to the pipe, the officers found a small baggy of meth stashed in one of Peralta's shoes.

After taking Peralta into custody, officers asked him the obvious question: Why the hell were you naked and lying in the middle of a field?

His response: "[I] wanted to feel closer to God and the Earth."

Peralta was booked into jail on one count of drug possession, one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, and two counts of felony indecent exposure.
