Tourists and residents of Big Coppitt Keys, Fla., had their early Sunday morning activities interrupted by a naked man running in traffic chanting "I'm king of the world!" Would you be surprised to learn his coronation involved LSD?


Police say Richard Gervasi, 43, of Pennsylvania was arrested after not just jumping into traffic outside Bobalu's, but lunging at the officers who responded. After a first hit from a Taser, Gervasi reportedly pulled the electrodes off and kept rocking. Officers tased him again, putting him on the pavement, but Gervasi got up and started walking away when the third Taser arrived and he was handcuffed.

Gervasi reportedly had been drinking and doing LSD. Maybe he was just looking for his lost shaker of "salt." [KeysNet via Miami New Times]
