Naked man apprehended near White House

By Washington Post editors

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.

Can someone post a description? There was a man a few months back who was walking up and down E street near Borders yelling and behaving irrationally. It seemed like he was on the verge of becoming violent.
