VIDEO: Los Angeles Police Vehicle Hits Naked Man in the Street

An investigation was underway Monday after a police vehicle struck and killed a naked man lying on a street in the West Adams district of South L.A., according to LAPD.

A police vehicle responding to a scene in West Adams struck and killed a naked man who was wearing only tennis shoes and lying on a street on July 27, 2014.

Reports of a naked man running around public streets near Hillcrest Drive and West Adams Boulevard were made to police around 10:20 p.m. Sunday, Los Angeles Police Department officials told KTLA.

As two responding officers drove to the scene, they ran over the man, who was lying near the intersection of Buckingham Road and West Adams Boulevard about two blocks from the call's location.

"It’s very unusual for someone to be lying in the street here," LAPD Sgt. Andy Neiman said. "We don’t know if this is a case of mental illness or if this individual was under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. Certainly all that will be part of the investigation and hopefully we will find that out."

It must have been very hot that night, you would think that if a person was going to lay in the street naked at night he/she would wear shoes with flashing lights.

Hey Cappie,
It brings a whole new meaning to, "Don't Tread On Me."

Capt.Crunch @ 7/28/2014 8:57 PM

@ TheRookie, you got that right.

Sgt george @ 7/29/2014 5:53 AM

It's L.A.P.D. they did not see the body, the were busy not looking.

p2dawg @ 7/29/2014 10:01 AM

@Sgt George the jealousy is dripping off your post. Don't be angry that you couldn't cut it.

Pup @ 7/29/2014 12:14 PM

Good for you 2dawg!!!

Nice to see you all joke about the death of an innocent civilian.
Perhaps it's time to start making similar comments about officer deaths.

Laying in the street with or without clothes on is hazardous to your health.

Ima Leprechaun @ 7/30/2014 12:19 PM

It's hard to call anybody an innocent civilian that is acting crazy and intentionally causing hazard to his own health. If you had run over the man I suspect you would feel quite differently. The scene was much darker without the light enhancing video that you see in the news story.

Capt. Crunch @ 7/30/2014 10:12 PM

You got to wonder what would Wyatt Earp, do if he saw a naked man lying in the street naked in his town. I bet he would have said Lenny, get the heck out of here and get a peanut shell to cover your private parts.
