A Miami police officer shot a naked man to death after he wouldn't stop eating another naked man's face on the MacArthur Causeway, authorities say. The survivor, who police think may have been homeless and was lying down when attacked, was taken to the hospital with critical injuries, according to the Miami Herald - whose building was next door to the scene of the crime and whose surveillance cameras showed the officer shooting the suspect...

He's not naked, and he's back on the ground. Turns out a man who climbed an electrical tower in North Hollywood on Friday was not nude, as initially reported by the Los Angeles Police Department, just shirtless. And after several hours, he agreed to come down. Los Angeles police Det. Gus Villanueva said two LAPD SWAT officers were lifted by a crane to where the man was on the tower. After they offered him a blanket, he agreed to come down. Though not hurt, the man is in police custody over what, for now, is being called misdemeanor trespassing, Villanueva said.

A man climbed up an electrical tower in North Hollywood on Friday afternoon and started taking off his clothes, police said. He is now nude and several stories up. "So naked guy on electricity pole, that's what it is," said Los Angeles police Officer Christopher No. After getting the call about 4:20 p.m., officers used a loudspeaker to begin trying to persuade the man to come down from the tower, off Denny Avenue and Whitnall Highway....

Was there any doubt she'd say yes? If there's one thing YouTube has taught us, it's that Americans like a good love story with ridiculous choreography. Following that trend, a couple in Portland, Ore., raised the bar for marriage proposals. In a video going viral, Amy Frankel sits in the open back of a Honda CRV wearing a pair of headphones as the car slowly drives down the street. A song starts playing. It's Bruno Mars' “Marry You.” Soon people start marching in the street behind the car, lip-syncing and dancing to the music - first two, then four, then six, then 16, then many, many more.

Police are searching for a man who broke into two homes while naked early Tuesday morning. The man forced his way into a 26-year-old woman's home on Charing Cross Drive about 5:25 a.m., authorities said. The naked man woke up the woman, who ran to a neighbor's home for help. The same man, still naked, apparently broke into a two-story home four blocks away on Garrett Circle about 6:47 a.m. A 49-year-old man living in the home found the intruder and struggled with him, authorities said.

Officers chased a naked man down the center divider of Highway 101 early Tuesday after reports that his jaunt stopped traffic. The unidentified man had been awaiting an evaluation for possible psychiatric issues when he walked away from a nearby hospital. The California Highway Patrol, sheriff's deputies, police and fire and ambulance crews were summoned to the scene, and CHP officers pulled ahead of southbound traffic, bringing it to a halt so the man wouldn't be struck.

"The Films of Konrad Wolf," one of the year's most rewarding retrospectives, continues today at the Goethe Institute, 5700 Wilshire Blvd., with "The Naked Man on the Playing Field" (1974), which on a less epic scale than Wolf's "Goya" explores the role of the artist in society and also makes a plea for the artist's freedom of expression.

The man whom Walnut Avenue once called Mike took to dawdling near his fence -- cheekily unclothed. Neighbors yanked down their blinds to block out the 5-foot-9, 165-pound man in his birthday suit. Out-of-towners screeched, and some folks phoned police and begged: Please oust the Naked Man. This kicked off a months-long chain of events that wrapped up Monday night with the Huntington Beach City Council approving a ban on public undress. Police Chief Kenneth W.

A Los Angeles police officer was justified in fatally shooting a naked, combative man, the Los Angeles Police Commission has ruled. The unanimous decision by the civilian board, which judges whether serious uses of force by Los Angeles Police Department officers are reasonable, closes the department's internal investigation into the dramatic, controversial confrontation, which drew media scrutiny and angry protests from the dead man's family and...

The Los Angeles Police Department on Saturday said that two officers involved in the fatal shooting of a former college football player in Playa Vista were "fighting for their lives" in the moments before one of them discharged his weapon. The statement about the shooting of Reginald Doucet Jr., who was unarmed and naked when he encountered police Friday morning, came as a prominent civil rights activist questioned why officers couldn't have used non-lethal means to subdue him and called on LAPD Chief Charlie Beck to review the department's training and tactics in dealing with unarmed suspects.

It's hard to say which booth was drawing more attention at Artexpo New York: the one with the paint-splashed naked man holding a box around his hips, or the one displaying cityscape paintings of tall buildings that resembled what you would see if the naked man dropped his box. If -- as Chicago gallery owner Woody Slaymaker said -- the only thing worse than a lousy comment about your art is no comment at all, then creators of both works must have...

In 1969, five young British comedians and one young American animator came together to make a television show. Without much of an idea of what they were going to do, they were given a series by the BBC to do it in, and after hunting around for a name -- "Owl-Stretching Time" and "A Horse, a Spoon, and a Basin" having been bruited and vetoed -- they settled on "Monty Python's Flying Circus." The 40th anniversary of this event is being marked by an excellent six-hour documentary series, "Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer's Cut)

A naked man was found dead Tuesday morning on the back of a killer whale in a tank at SeaWorld Orlando, apparently after remaining in the Florida theme park after closing time, police said. "The man was found nude on the whale's back," said Jim Solomons, spokesman for the Orange County sheriff's office. "There was no obvious trauma--he wasn't bitten or chewed up or anything." Investigators said an autopsy would determine the cause of death, and drowning was considered a strong possibility.

In the open desert outside Baiji, Iraq, a naked man with a thick black beard crouched in the dust of a railroad culvert at twilight. Hours before, he had been mumbling and praying in Arabic. Now he spoke few words. Army 1st Lt. Michael Behenna stood over him in the grainy darkness, his Glock pistol racked and pointed down at him. "If you don't talk, I will kill you," Behenna said. The night was warm and ragged from the dust storm that had turned the afternoon an eerie ocher.
