A nude man in a Jeep caught the eye of two kids walking with their dad in Port Washington's downtown, prompting a call to police and a short car chase — and though the naked man was nowhere to be found, a Milwaukee man is facing charges.

Port police responded to the hotel, 135 E. Grand Ave., at 7:09 p.m. Tuesday after the manager called regarding a man who had requested assistance in his room, waiting naked for employees to arrive.
