(KNSI) - Authorities say a naked man seen running around St. Cloud early Monday morning made his way to the Stearns County Sheriff's Office where he was detained.
Police say the man was first seen sitting naked outside an apartment complex around 4:15 a.m. and was acting strangely.
Before officers could get to the location, police in Sauk Rapids were informed of a naked man running in their city, north of the city limits of St. Cloud.
The man had a cell phone in his hand and had been identified by other means.
At 5:37 a.m. he had made his way back to St. Cloud and was seen near the downtown post office, and then minutes later walking up the steps of the courthouse.
He then made his way to the sheriff's office vestibule where he was detained.
Authorities say, while many see the humor in the incident, it's a very serious situation.
They say the man was under the influence of substances or narcotics and could've injured himself or others.
"Humorous as the situation may be, this was a potentially dangerous event for this man that didn't need to happen," the sheriff's office said.
