Naked man runs in front of oncoming semi 


A man was taken into custody after jumping on top of a car and running naked in front of a semi truck. 

The incident happened at around 5:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 31st in Southington, Ohio. 

According to WKBN 27 News, police received calls reporting a naked man lying on the side of the road in the area of US-422 and state Route 534. The man reportedly jumped on the hood of a vehicle stopped at a stop sign, and then ran naked down 422 before stopping to lie in the road in front of oncoming traffic. 

When police arrived, they found the man in a nearby field before he eventually ran into the path of an oncoming semi truck. The man then ran towards a deputy and was hit with a stun gun. The man then resisted arrest and got away from the officer, prompting police to deploy the stun gun again. 

Deputies were eventually able to handcuff and medicate the man to calm him down. He was then transported to a hospital for evaluation. 

Friends and family of the man then told officers that he had experienced a similar psychological break in Howland Township and was on medications as a result of that incident. No further information has been released.
