Police and lifeguards in California teamed up to catch a 300-pound naked man who swam out to sea to escape authorities.

Earlier in the night, the unnamed man was reportedly a suspect in a high-speed chase.

Lifeguards spent 30 minutes trying to rescue the combative man, who squirmed and bobbed in the water at Redondo Beach, refusing to surrender.

Lifeguards were eventually able to get the man on a surfboard and pull him to shore, where police arrested him.
