Naked Seattle intruder recites Scripture in home

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - It was little comfort to the residents of a Seattle home along Lake Washington when the naked man who crashed through their front door began loudly reciting Scripture.

Police say a woman in the home called 911 at about 2 a.m. Tuesday while her husband grabbed a baseball bat to protect his wife and two young children on the home's upper floor.

Arriving officers spotted a naked man walking down the street, talking to himself. He took off running, they chased and caught him.

Police say after they arrested the 20-year-old man for investigation of burglary, he told them he'd taken LSD. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment, then booked into jail.
