Naked man jumps fence, into pool full of children in Overland Park

June 3, 2011


— Overland Park police say a man who ran naked through a neighborhood before jumping into a pool full of children probably won't be charged.

KSHB-TV reports the 20-year-old man ran in and out of traffic in the northeastern Kansas community Wednesday afternoon before jumping a fence and into the pool.

A woman caught the scene on her cell phone after the unidentified streaker got out of the passenger side of a car and started running up a busy street.

All of the children in the pool got out and waited while the man stood in the water for several minutes.

Eventually police arrived and coaxed him out of the pool. He was taken to a hospital by ambulance for evaluation.

I can think of several violations of the law here - why is he likely not to be charged?

Since he was taken by ambulance to a hospital for evaluation, rather than to jail by the police suggests that there was some credible reason to believe that they were dealing with a mental health problem.

The video of the man running naked along the street appeared on a KC news station. The lady and her children (who found it very creppy) were so shocked by his actions, that they changed directions in their vehicle and followed him to the community pool so she could take additional videos. You could hear their "fear" as they laughed and made comments about the man.

Seems like the police handled it in a reasonable fashion. The video taker had no problems taking her children to see more.

Haha, bet the kids thought this was the funniest thing they'd ever seen.
