LA MESA (CNS) - A naked man found walking on Interstate 8 amid frigid temperatures Wednesday was taken into custody by police, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The incident in westbound lanes near Severin Drive was called in at 11:11 a.m., CHP officer Tommy Doerr said.

Officers arrived and took him into custody about 11:30 a.m.

"He was transported to County Mental Health for evaluation," Doerr said.

The Union-Tribune reported the man was associated with a nearby solo wreck.

Under California law, the man, whose name was withheld, could be hospitalized involuntarily for up to 72 hours if deemed a danger to himself or others.
