Walking to my car one morning I heard a crash. By the time I got the two blocks to the site a man was lying in the street unconscious.
A physician was there and 911 had been called. I went to comfort the hysterical driver who hit him.
A person who lived on that block said the neighbors had been calling the police because a naked man was almost continually walking back and forth across the busy street. He hid in bushes when the police came. He was given clothing but refused to be taken to a clinic or the hospital down the street.
So all night two or three nights a week he would walk naked across the street.
The police said, "We could arrest him but can't keep him. He has the right to refuse treatment."
Sorry but to me he was clearly a danger to himself. I don't know if he survived after the ambulance took him to the ER.
