Man in Only Underwear & Latex Gloves Found in Middle of Road

CARUTHERSVILLE, MO (KAIT) - The Memorial day weekend in Caruthersville proved to be an active one with a number of incidents, including a man dressed only in latex gloves and underwear standing in the middle of the road.

It happened Friday morning at 8 a.m. when Caruthersville Police observed a 49-year old black male standing in the road at 3rd and Carleton.  Dressed only in his underwear and a pair of latex gloves, the man was taken into custody.

He was later transported to Farmington for a mental evaluation.  No word on why he was wearing the gloves.

Later that day, a burglary was reported on East Parkview.  It was said that several collector coins were stolen from a safe at the residence.  Officers said there was no sign of forced entry.  Anyone with information on this is urged to call Caruthersville Police at 573-333-2121.

Also keeping officers busy were a mix of intoxicated drivers and a number of fights.  Seven people were arrested over the Memorial day weekend for fighting and two DWI arrests were made.
