Naked Man Walking Down the Middle of Columbia Pike Arrested

A man walking naked down the middle of Columbia Pike was arrested “without incident” Saturday evening.

Arlington County Police say they were dispatched to the 2400 block of Columbia Pike just after 5:30 p.m. A photo posted to the ARLnow.com comment section over the weekend (above) shows an officer with a Taser walking behind the man on the 3000 block of Columbia Pike, near the Days Inn and the McDonald’s.

Police suggested the man may have been suffering mental health issues. He was transported under police custody to Virginia Hospital Center.
