Police arrested a man Tuesday who was running naked through traffic on the 405 Freeway in West Los Angeles during morning rush hour.

It goes without saying, drugs makes you do strange things.

Not only did I see him, he tried to steal my purse and phone! Luckily, someone helped me fight him off. (And someone else provided hand sanitizer.)

Any pictures??

Did anyone see "The Time Traveller's Wife"? Did it look like the guy in the movie?

Just sayin'...

Maybe it was his birthday? A West Side full of cell phones, any pics/vids yet???
