Jul 09 2010
LOS ANGELES — Southern California commuters can now say they've seen it all, including a well endowed naked man in the middle of Interstate 405. California Highway Patrol Officer Monica Posada said the first call came at the height of rush-hour Thursday _ a man with no clothes was in the center divide of the freeway. Then came a rush of calls reporting the man in the buff.
Long Beach police detained the 21-year-old man and gave him a mental health evaluation.
Police said he was taken into custody and will be charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure.
Several female motorists contacted the Long Beach PD with offers to post the man's bail if he could be released to their personal custody. A police official said the department would have to contact the State Attorney General's Office on Monday to deetermine if a prisoner can be released into the custody of an unrelated third party who posted bond for his release.
