A man was arrested Tuesday after running naked through morning rush hour traffic on the 405 Freeway in West Los Angeles, reports the LA Times. The unidentified nudie was reportedly trying "to make contact with people in their cars" near Pico Boulevard, according to a California Highway Patrol spokesman.

Later, he was seen near the Santa Monica Blvd freeway offramp, and reportedly attacked a woman, notes CBS Local. The "alleged naked attacker" was arrested and taken to a local hospital while police investigated if crimes other than indecent exposure were committed.
