STRAWBERRY PLAINS, Tenn. (WVLT)– At 10:32 Tuesday morning, the Knox County Sheriff’s department was called to 9235 Strawberry Plains Pike.

There were reports that a naked man was running through a church parking lot and got stuck in a storm drain. The man was identified as 50 year old David Ford.

Matt Giles called 9-1-1 when he saw the man running through the parking lot and tells us, “It’s not something you normally see but we thought he might have been stabbed or shot. We ran out to help him but it seemed like he was just mentally confused.”

When EMS and the sheriff’s department arrived; they had to go into the drain and pull the man out.

He was then taken to UT Medical Center for a mental and physical evaluation.

He was arrested for public indencency.
