The Associated Press

PORTLAND — Portland police say a 19-year-old man was running naked in freeway traffic in downtown Portland Thursday morning, jumping down 15 feet onto Interstate 405.

The police said cars swerved to miss the man, who fled from officers but was eventually subdued when officers used a stun gun on him.

Police say the 19-year-old man was taken to the hospital for treatment of a methamphetamine overdose.
