Naked man apprehended near White House
The Secret Service apprehended a man who was running naked near the White House Wednesday afternoon and investigated a suspicious package that turned out to be the man's clothing.
The man stripped off his clothes and left them in a bag near the intersection of 15th and E Streets, at around 5 p.m., according to Malcolm Wiley, a spokesman for the Secret Service. The man then began running up and down E Street.
"He wasn't yelling or protesting, just going for a jog," Wiley said. "He was apprehended, naked though he was."
The bag was investigated and determined to be harmless. The man was taken into custody but has not been charged.
