Nude Man Found Eating Garbage in Caruthersville

CARUTHERSVILLE, MO (KAIT) - Don't expect any pictures, but Tuesday morning, Caruthersville Police were perplexed to find a naked man eating garbage at Reynolds Park!

It was at 11:20 a.m. that Caruthersville Police responded to the call Tuesday morning, in reference to a nude man swimming at the Riverfront at Reynolds Park.  But when officers arrived, the man was no longer swimming.  He was having a snack...from a garbage can!

It didn't take long for officers to ascertain that the man was not mentally coherent, so they arrested the 49-year-old black male and took him to Pemiscot Count Jail and later Farmington for a mental evaluation.

His name has not been released.  No word on if he will face any charges.
