Los Angeles Police Department officers were sent out on a call regarding a nearly nude man who was standing in traffic removing his clothing, says the Daily News. Once on scene at 54th Street and Avalon Boulevard at around 8 this morning, the officers chased the suspect a short distance, ultimately employing "beanbag and Taser devices." He was taken into custody, and to a local hospital, where he died. The man's name and other identifying information has not been released to the public yet.

Yesterday, in Burbank, a naked woman who attacked officers was subdued by tasering.
