Odd traffic stop

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California commuters can now say they’ve seen it all, including a 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.
