A naked man led police on a foot chase along Lake Washington early this morning after smashing his way into a home in the Denny-Blaine neighborhood and sermonizing to the family inside.
The family was asleep inside their home in the 400 block of Lake Washington Boulevard E. just before 2 AM when they heard someone crash through their front door and begin loudly reciting scripture.
A woman inside the home called 911 while her husband armed himself with a baseball bat to protect his wife and two young children, who were holed up in the upper floor of the house.
As officers arrived at the home, they spotted a naked man walking down the street, talking to himself.
When the naked suspect spotted officers, he took off running along Lake Washington Blvd. Two officers were able to catch up to the nude man and corral him.
After officers arrested the the 20-year-old suspect for burglary, he admitted he’d taken LSD before the incident, and was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment. Officers later booked the man into the King County Jail.
