CHICAGO (CBS) – Even though it was snowing, it was apparently not too cold for one man who was arrested after people saw him running around wearing nothing but socks and carrying a crack pipe Saturday morning in the East Lakeview neighborhood.
At 11 a.m. police responded to a call of disturbance involving a male running around naked with a crack pipe in his hand in the 2900 block of North Broadway, near Surf Street, according to Town Hall District police Lt. Robert Stasch.
Sure enough, when police arrived, they found the 38-year-old man wearing only socks and holding a glass pipe used to smoke cocaine.
Officers found his clothing and a small bag of cannabis and arrested him, according to the lieutenant.
The block of Broadway where the man was caught is part of a dense retail district that sees heavy pedestrian traffic regularly.
The man, Keithan Robie, 38, of the 1400 block of South Canal Street, was charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, a Town Hall District police sergeant said. Both charges are misdemeanors.
