Naked Man Arrested on the 405 Freeway

Oh, that 405 Freeway, it gets a lot of action. From a skateboarder to a large group of cyclists, from a family of ducks to mountain lions, there's been much craziness. The latest freeway encounter was during the Thursday afternoon rush hour when the California Highway Patrol was flooded with calls about a nude man on the center divider in the Long Beach area. Twitter user GMoney310 snapped a photo (see right) and wrote "WTF someone naked in the middle of the 405 by Cherry ave." Police arrested a 21-year-old Auburn man and charged him with misdemeanor indecent exposure.
