IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – A naked 41-year-old Iowa City man told deputies that he’d been forced by four men to handle a nuclear bomb at his home in Iowa City.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports deputies were dispatched to the area about 3:30 a.m. Monday.

They say they found William Bliss naked and showing signs that he’d been drinking. He told them he was forced to handle the bomb at his home nearby.

Deputies say he took off running when they tried to detain him. The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy was injured during the chase.

A Johnson County jailer said later Monday morning that Bliss was still in custody. Online court records don’t list the case yet.
